PHOTOS: Parade of Paws

Posted By on Sat, Jun 14, 2014 at 3:42 PM

The Parade of Paws entered its 11th year on Saturday at the Spokane Humane Society. Volunteer Coordinator Jenna Carroll said that between 700 and 1,000 people were expected to participate this year. About 70 percent of the funds for Spokane Humane Society, a nonprofit, come from events like the Parade of Paws, which brings in about $60-70,000. It costs roughly $1.3 million to run the shelter every year.

The Parade of Paws offered two different walking routes for dogs and their owners. One route was two miles and wound through the surrounding neighborhood, while the other route was four miles and took walkers to the top of Mount St. Michael.
