The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s 20th annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals is going virtual this year and will host a special celebration on social media on Saturday, Feb. 20.

Although the walk is virtual, participants will still fundraise and celebrate their furry best friends. Peggy Adams encourages all of those in the community to sign up and arrange a walk, either solo, with your pets or with some friends (safely and socially distanced) at a place and time convenient to you. Fundraising will remain open through March 6.

“For the first time in the history of our 20-year walk, we are going virtual,” said Rich Anderson, executive director/CEO of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “We wish that we could celebrate this milestone event in person. However, we ask that everyone who wants to help the homeless pets in our care participate in this event and raise funds to help us save these abandoned and injured animals in need.”

All proceeds benefit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. The 20th annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals is presented by MetLife Pet Insurance. Partners include KAST Construction, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Napleton’s on Northlake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 1-800-PetMeds, BRK Republic, Garden of Life, NCCI, Nozzle Nolen Pest Solutions, Scenthound, and Hubbard Radio stations 97.7 WRMF, X102.3, New Country 103.1, Sunny 107.9, Party 96.3, FOX Sports 640AM and 850 WFTL.

KAST Construction is sponsoring this year’s walk with a $15,000 matching grant.
