Attend the 2015 NHS Walk for the Animals

By on August 31, 2015

Each year, the Margre Durham Walk for the Animals raises thousands of dollars for the Nebraska Humane Society. From admission tickets, sponsorship, people and dog packs raising money on their own, fees for vendors and more, the NHS is able to turn the success of that social and fundraising event around to do good in Omaha’s pet community.

This year’s event will again be successful and it’s right around the corner.
