Paw Walk in the Garden

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) and the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) joined forces in producing the 5th Annual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden. San Diegans brought their furry friends for a morning walk in the garden, interactive games, pet products, food (for people), treats (for dogs), information and displays, and full access to the garden after the walk. Despite a little rain, this year’s event was a booming success and raised over $20,000 to benefit both RCHS and SDBG. “This has quickly become the walk that every dog will beg to go on,” said SDBG Education and Events Manager Sam Beukema.
