JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A dog who was saved from respiratory distress will lead a parade to help raise money for the Jacksonville Humane Society.
Miley collapsed during a walk at the shelter. She has been picked to lead the JHS Mutt March on Saturday, March 2. JHS hopes to raise $100,000 to care for shelter pets.
"Miley is the perfect dog to represent JHS at Mutt March. She, and so many others like her, have overcome medical obstacles to bring great joy to their adoptive families. That wouldn't be possible without the funds raised at Mutt March," said Denise Deisler, JHS executive director. "We are depending on Mutt March to raise enough money to care for the thousands of pets who rely on JHS for medical care and shelter each year."The Mutt March
is set to start at 9 a.m. at the Jacksonville Landing. There will be music, a silent auction, and several vendors along the St. Johns Riverwalk. The march will last 2 miles.
