Bobbi & the Strays will hold its Seventh Annual Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser and Adoption Event, “Walk 4 Paws,” to benefit the lifesaving efforts of their no-kill animal shelters which are located in Glendale, and Freeport, Long Island. Partnering with NYC Parks and Recreation’s Pets and Pals Party, participants and their dogs will walk on the trails of Alley Pond Park, with walking trails for all levels: Easy, and Athletic for the active dogs and their owners.

The event will take place on Sunday, May 3, from 11 am to 3 pm (rain or shine), at Alley Pond Park (Springfield Boulevard Parking Lot), at 76th Avenue and Springfield Boulevard.
With the expected animal-loving crowd to be nearly 2,000, following the walk participants can enjoy a day of family and pet fun including:
