Second Chance 4 Pets Network, a local animal rescue, will sponsor a Paws in Paradise Walk-a-thon and Pet Fair on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00  p.m. at the Robertsdale Little League Complex, 119th Street and Wolf Lake in Hammond, Indiana.

The pet fair will include a pet blessing (10:15 a.m.), vendors, animal rescues and pet adoptions, K-9 and pet safety demonstrations, food, merchandise, door prizes, and pet contests and games.  Music will be provided by Jambulance.

Second Chance 4 Pets Network will be microchipping pets for a nominal fee, and a pet photographer will be on hand to take pictures of your adorable pets in costume. There will be luau-themed activities throughout the day.

The 2014 Second Chance 4 Pets calendar featuring pets from the community will be for sale at the pet fair.

Pets are welcome to participate in the walk-a-thon and pet fair, but they must be leashed and current on vaccinations. You do not have to have a pet to participate in the walk-a-thon.

ALL proceeds benefit Second Chance 4 Pets Network and will be used for their spay/neuter services and rescue/adoption program.
