2011 Furry Skurry May 14
The 20th Annual Furry Skurry will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2011 from 8:30 to 1:00 PM on the grounds of Miami Valley Hospital South! The annual walk raises much-needed funds for the programs and services of the Humane Society and has been a fixture in the community since 1991.
This family-friendly event benefitting the Humane Society of Greater Dayton will begin at 8:30 AM, and the 5K dog walk will begin at 10:00 AM. Spring is finally here, so come enjoy the sunshine and fresh air – bring a canine buddy if you like – and support the Humane Society of Greater Dayton in their mission to care for and find homes for abandoned pets in the community.
The route begins on the grounds of Miami Valley Hospital South, travels west on Clyo Road to the Dayton CARE Center (emergency veterinary hospital), winds back through the beautiful surrounding neighborhoods and returns to Miami Valley Hospital South, where participants can enjoy food, fun and festivities; vendors of pet-related products and services will be on hand.

Can’t make it to the walk this year? Become a “virtual walker” and create an online fundraising page. Proceeds of the Furry Skurry go to help animals like Pippin (see his story below).
Pippin’s story is a sad one. Up until recently, Pippin (pictured) had a loving home. when his owner suddenly passed away, Pippin was heartbroken, and worse yet, he was forgotten and left behind for nine days, with no food and water. A long-distance relative remembered him just in time. Now he waits, at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, for someone who will just give him love and a place to stay for the rest of his days. He is quite and polite, and would make a lovely and well-behaved pet for a senior citizen, as well, as he is gentle and easily managed.
