Dog walk-a-thon scheduled

AMSTERDAM – The 12th annual Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals dog walk-a-thon is scheduled for May 31. The supporters of the MCSPCA are reminded to begin their donation collections by visiting, a news release said.

All proceeds from this major annual fundraising event will benefit the MCSPCA’s new animal shelter building fund.

Walkers can create their own free web page (no web design experience necessary) and collect donations for the MCSPCA online by e-mailing a link to their contacts, posting their page on Facebook, sharing on Twitter, and using other social networking tools.

Those who cannot attend the May 31, event are encouraged to register as a Virtual Walker by creating a fundraising page to support the MCSPCA. The Virtual walkers also qualify for the prizes awarded for reaching various donation levels.
