Walk your dog for a chance to win $2,500 for the HSCC!

Join the $2,500 Steps for Pet Health Challenge from the challenge tab of the Walk for a Dog app and your next walk could score an instant donation for the HSCC—and a fun treat for yourself.

If you don’t have the Walk for a Dog app currently installed, download from your app store in ios or andriod.

Any walk in the challenge between now and June 30th, 2018, could earn a $2,500 grand prize donation, courtesy of Rover, or one of the weekly donation prizes.

Get your friends in on the Steps for Pet Heath Challenge too: The more people are walking for your favorite animal organization, the more likely it could win one of the weekly donation prizes—or the grand prize donation.

(P.S. any walk will do! Walks are more fun with dogs, but you do not have to be walking your dog to log your walk.)


Triple AmazonSmile Donations & Saint Paw-tricks Day!!

3x your impact! From March 12-31, Amazon is tripling the donation rate on your first smile.amazon.com purchase! Go to smile.amazon.com/ch/73-1409570 and Amazon donates to Humane Society of Cherokee County.

It is Saint Paw-tricks Day Shelter Drive month at the Tahlequah Petsense. If you buy a pawprint or clover, Merrick will donate food to the HSCC shelter. If Tahlequah Petsense sells the most paws and clovers in the Petsense world, HSCC will win a free pallet of food.

So stop by Petsense during the month of March and get your name on a pawprint or clover and help feed an HSCC animal at the same time.

Also plan on visiting HSCC at Petsense to help celebrate Saint Paw-tricks Day on Saturday, March 17th.

As always, thanks for helping out the animals of HSCC.
