Springtime is here and Red Door Animal Shelter is preparing for the eighth annual Gimme Shelter! Walk for the Animals. On Sunday, June 1st, 2008, over 300 animal lovers will gather at Indian Boundary Park (2500 W. Lunt, Chicago) in West Ridge neighborhood for Red Door¢s largest fundraiser of the year. Attendees participate in a 2.5K walk around the park followed by breakfast of muffins and bagels, a raffle for great prizes, and other fun activities.
Please consider making a donation in support of their efforts, or if you are in the area, please come out and cheer them on (and feel free to visit the shelter afterwards). All proceeds from the walk benefit the hundreds of cats, dogs and bunnies cared for by Red Door every year.
Please make all checks payable to Red Door Animal Shelter and send them to:
Red Door Animal Shelter
PO Box 269119
Chicago, IL 60626.
You can also donate or register for the walk online at reddoorshelter.org. Please note in the gift information section that your gift is in support of Gimme Shelter! Also, please feel free to pass along this information to anyone who might like to participate!
Thank you for your support!
