WINNIPEG – September 10, 2012 - Petsecure is proud to join D’Arcy’s A.R.C. as a sponsor for its 2nd Annual Woof Walk fundraiser. Held Saturday, September 15, the 2 km walk will take place at Kildonan Park in Winnipeg. Registration starts at 11:00am, and the walk starts at 12:00pm. Funds raised from the walk go towards the rescue and care of cats and dogs.


“As the sponsor for the Woof Walk, this is a great opportunity to raise awareness on responsible pet ownership while supporting a great cause,” said Vice President of Business Development Bill Skubovius.

The Woof Walk will include fun for the whole family, such as face painting, dog agility demo, vendor market, raffle and more.
