Grab your leash and join the Michigan Humane Society for the 13th Annual Mega March for Animals, presented by Sellers Subaru, on Saturday, October 6, at Kensington Metropark's Martindale Beach in Milford, and Sunday, October 7, on the beautiful Detroit RiverWalk at Cullen Plaza!
Save animal lives now by signing up for the best way to ring in another beautiful Michigan fall season: walking with your furry pal through two awesome locations!
Your support is one of the reasons MHS is able to curb pet overpopulation. Your fundraising rescues animals from emergency situations. Your attendance helps provide medical attention to injured animals. No matter how you participate, you make a difference.
Dewey is just one of the many animals that MHS has cared for. Watch what inspired us to march for Dewey HERE! You are the reason so many homeless, injured, and neglected animals have been given the care and love they deservedly need.
So march with us! March for hungry animals, for abused dogs, for maimed cats. March for humane education, for homeless pets, for change in our community. March to help the forgotten animals of Metro Detroit.
Who are YOU marching for?
