Rescues are encouraged to walk with us, bring their banners and wear their rescue t shirts.

We will assemble at 12pm at Plaza of the Americas, on the west side of Michigan Avenue, just north of the Wrigley Building. We will walk to Oak Street and back.

Refreshments will be served in the Plaza of the Americas after the march.

Please join us and bring friends! Dogs are welcome, but all dogs must be leashed.

There will be a blessing of the animals on the plaza when we’ve finished the walk. Chicago Police Department Chaplain Bob Montelongo will do a blanket blessing for all animals present, and then will be available for individual blessings for those who want them.
