This past weekend, I participated in the Wags and Whiskers Walk-a-thon and Pet Fair to benefit the Westchester SPCA  in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y. We had great weather, hung out with friends (human and canine!) and gave the pups some exercise.
The numbers are still coming in for last weekend, but last year, the event raised over $80,000 for the shelter. So you can imagine that walk-a-thons have become popular fundraisers for animal shelters around the country. But, money aside, these events are a great way to unite the local pet loving community in support of a great cause.
Here are a few upcoming events:
