Regents Rovers Bring their Paws to the Park to Raise Money for SD Humane Society
On May 9, Regents Bank team “Regents Rovers” took part in the 16th annual Walk for Animals: Paws in the Park, a two-mile walk, with a half mile short route, at NTC Park at Liberty Station in San Diego. Our team, thanks to contributions from team members, co-workers and clients, raised $650 for the San Diego Humane Society and had a great time doing it!
The event kicked off with a pancake breakfast, doggie activities and a vendor village. After the blessing of the animals, walkers and their furry companions warmed up and set off strolling to raise money for a great cause. Participants have raised nearly $332,000 so far.
Started in 1880 by famed San Diegans George W. Marston, a civic leader and merchant, and George W. Hazzard, a business and real estate leader, the San Diego Humane Society is the oldest and largest humane society in San Diego County and the recipient of repeated four-star ratings from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator of non-profits. Fewer than six percent of non-profits receive this recognition of sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
With campuses in San Diego, Escondido and Oceanside, San Diego Humane Society provides vital services to animals and people by sheltering animals, arranging adoptions, providing positive reinforcement training classes, investigating animal cruelty and neglect, presenting education programs for youth and adults and much more. We’re proud to support their mission of promoting the humane treatment of animals, to prevent cruelty to animals and provide education to enhance the human-animal bond.
Our Regents Rovers had a wonderful time helping this great nonprofit organization and its mission. We encourage anyone thinking about participating next year to mark their calendars.
