87 George goes to the dogs

The Market Media Mall at 87 George Street went to the dogs Thursday night.

CTV Ottawa was hosting the launch party to the 26th annual Ottawa Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walkathon, to be held this September 7th.

Nearly two dozen pooches joined the party, alongside their people, and Ottawa Humane Society executive director Bruce Roney.

Roney spoke with CFRA's Ron Corbett Thursday evening and says the Walkathon, and the newer Run For The Animals (which is in its second year) are the Humane Society's biggest fundraisers of the year.

"We are very dependant on it, the animals are very dependent on it, and we're looking to raise $200,000 this year, between the two events." Roney says.
