Calgary, AB — Immediate Release

On June 4, 2016, as part of the 15th annual Dog Jog at South Glenmore Park, Calgary Humane Society will attempt to set a new World Record for the most dogs wearing bandannas.

The previous record was set by an SPCA in Australia in 2015, with 764 dogs wearing bandanas.

Calgary Humane is hoping to beat that record this June to put Calgary on the map!

To participate go to www.calgaryhumane.ca and register, because we need your help to set a new record and raise much needed funds for Calgary Humane Society and the more than 7,600 animals we help each year.
