Bark Against Abuse - at Ladysmith High School

The first annual Bark Against Abuse Awareness Walk will be a fun way to meet fellow dog lovers and learn about "The Link" that exists between animal abuse and family violence. Research from the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys has found that 76% of individuals who abuse animals, also abuse a member of their family. During this event, learn more about how to report animal abuse and prevent family violence. You can also sign up to foster animals in need.

This event is completely FREE and everyone is encouraged to attend! Dogs are welcome during the walk as long as they are on a leash. Trail length is under 1 mile, but you can walk as much or as little as you'd like. Snacks/refreshments will be provided, there will be treats for your 4-legged friends, as well as a drawing for various prizes. We welcome human and pet Halloween costumes too.

This event is sponsored by: Embrace, Rusk Restorative Youth Programs, Rusk County Animal Shelter, and the Rusk County Community Library.
