This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 06-10-2013 06-10-2013 15 5th Annual Hounds on the Sound Dog Walk-a-thon & Festival Finally, an event where you don't have to leave your dog at home! In fact, that's what it's all about. Join in the Hounds on the Sound Dog Walk and Festival in New Rochelle on Sun., Oct. 6 and show off your own four-legged friend while helping those who are still waiting for homes of their own. Hundreds of walkers and their dogs will take a leisurely 1.5-mile stroll along Long Island Sound as they walk the perimeter of Glen Island Park. Dog lovers are invited to register for the fifth annual walk and get pledges of support from family and friends. You can also just show up to walk and pay the $25 registration fee ($40 for a family). The event is a fundraiser for the New Rochelle Humane Society and Pet Rescue of Larchmont, with some of the proceeds going to the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter. Activities will run from 10am-3pm, with the Dog Walk starting at 11:30am. Scott Shannon (of The Scott and Todd in the Morning Show on WPLJ 95.5 FM) will be the guest speaker and will cut the ribbon for the Walk. He adopted his dog, Reilly, from Pet Rescue. After the procession, everyone is invited to stick around for a fun (and free) afternoon at the park. Browse the wares of two dozen vendors (with lots of dog-related merchandise), listen to music, and enjoy refreshments such as pizza, home-baked treats, and ice cream. Get a take-home photo of you and your dog posing at the water's edge, get a balloon shaped like a dog, watch an agility demonstration, and stop by the "kiddie korner" for some face painting, a game of musical chairs, or best trick competitions. New this year: dress-up for you and your dog and a Frisbee competition! Both dogs and cats will be available for adoption at the event.
