The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is holding its 21st annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Meyer Amphitheatre at 105 Evernia St. Bring your four-legged friends, but make sure they are leashed and friendly.
The event includes vendors, a silent auction, entertainment and a pet costume contest. Registered walkers get breakfast, and the walk begins at 10:15 a.m. Registration is allowed that morning, although pre-registration is encouraged.
Participating in the walk is free, and the more money you raise, the more prizes you can earn. Every person who raises or donates at least $35 earns a commemorative event T-shirt and dog bandanna.
This year’s mascot is Olivia, who was found hurt and alone in November. Animal Care & Control amputated her leg, then brought her to Peggy Adams, where she regained her health and showcased her bright personality.
During the walk, a pet contest will be open to all registered attendees, who must sign up at the contest booth between 9 and 10:30 a.m. Participants in the walk are encouraged to watch the contest if they choose not to compete. Winners in the categories of best dressed, most creative, best owner/pet look-alike and best in show will be announced at noon.

If you can’t make the walk, you can listen to Jenny Ross host the event on Sunny 107.9 FM.
Next door to the main event at the amphitheater, The Young Friends of Peggy Adams' will hold a charity brunch at ER Bradley’s Saloon at 11:15 a.m. Join the group for refreshments and information about how to get involved.
