Spanish themed fundraiser held by HART

HART set out to raise the money through a silent auction featuring sombreros filled with goodies, sale of HART apparel, donations, walking tacos, concessions and sale of pet photos taken in front of a Mexican backdrop.

The event also featured a kids corner for entertaining young children with games, complimentary nail trims for dogs that completed the three mile walk and a first annual indoor “Chihuahua and Wannabe Chihuahua” parade.
