Iconic Ottawa Event has Pets and Their People Vibrating with Excitement

We’re close to two weeks away from the 35th annual Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run. It’s all anyone and any dog can talk about at the shelter.

There’s going to be walks and runs for kids, dogs, families and athletes a like.

There’s going to be a family fun zone with a bouncy castle.

There’s going to be a K9 fun zone with a dog agility course and other fun activities for you and your pup.

I don’t exaggerate when I say there is going to be a SEA of dogs. Turn left: dog. Right: dog. Down: dog. Up: dog.

On Sept. 24, Lansdowne Park’s Great Lawn is the place to be for pets and the people who love them. At the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run, the community comes together in an incredible way for the animals. Right now, the OHS is packed with cats from kitten season, dogs who need a little extra love and attention and many, many rabbits.

When you sign up for the walk, you’re making a difference for animals like Dottie, a seriously cute black lab who came to us last year badly injured and pepper sprayed.

It’s thanks to the community’s support that Dottie got the emergency care she needed and has been able to take all the time she needs recovering in the care of a foster home.

Now Dottie is ready for adoption and would love to have a family to take her to the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run.

Do it for Dottie and many more homeless animals just like her. I can’t wait to see at Lansdowne Park’s Great Lawn on Sept. 24.
