- Paws hit the pavement today in Rhinelander. It was all for a good cause. This was the second annual Downtown Pet Stroll. Pet owners and their furry friends met downtown to walk a mile in Rhinelander. More exotic owners dressed their dog up. Check out this owner/dog matching outfit combo.
Oneida humane society director says this helps support the animals. It's also a great way to get exercise. "A lot of shelters and humane societies have walks. It's kind of a well known fundraiser for humane societies," said Oneida County Humane Society director, Bria Swartout. "It just brings people out. Getting along with bringing their pet out. Able to walk and get exercise for both you and your pet." They're not sure how much money they raised today. But officials have high hopes they raised as much as last year. "We're hoping to reach last year's goal. It was about $2,500 last year. So we're hoping to exceed that." Swartout said. If you didn't walk today, you can always go on their website and donate.
