Mutt March for East Africa began as a way to help children learn that love has no size restrictions.
On Wednesday, Aug. 17, a pair of pooches from Port Alberni will contribute to the cause with a walk starting at the government boat launch at Harbour Quay.
The event kicks off at 9 a.m.
This is a fundraiser, and walkers are asked to collect pledges depending on how many kilometres Rosie and Itty Bitty Betty walk. Organizers are hoping to raise $200 to donate to ADRA Africa. Donations can be made online at www.adra.ca, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The pooches will also walk in Parksville, Coombs, Nanoose, Lantzville and Nanaimo.
