The 7th Annual Whisker Walk, hosted by the Sterling Animal Shelter in Sterling, Mass. is scheduled for June 8, 2014. Join in the fun from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lancaster Fairgrounds in Lancaster, Mass.

All money raised will go to benefit the shelter and its many programs that help homeless, neglected and abandoned animals. Entrance to the walk is free and there are a vast array of things to do.

Walk around the more than 50 acres of land with your family, including your pooch, while you check out the 100 or so pet related vendors, sponsors, companies, groups, manufacturers and rescues.

The dog walk-a-thon fundraiser starts at noon and will follow the Blessing of the Animals. There will also be raffles, auctions, giveaways and contests. Peruse the exhibits and watch the agility course, frisbee dog show and special attractions. Don't miss out on the educational opportunities and different demonstrations. Kids won't be bored either with rides, petting animals, face painting and more. Treat your dog to free rabies vaccine, low-cost microchipping or canine good citizen testing.
