8th Annual K-9 Krawl October 18, 2014

Join DASH angels Kitty, Dan and their dog, Dallas, at the 8th Annual K-9 Krawl sponsored by the Victims Services Unit of the Fairfax County Police Department. The Krawl is a free 5K walk and open to walkers and their dogs to highlight the connection between domestic violence and animal abuse. Often pets are caught in the middle of domestic violence and used to control or get revenge on the abused partner. Be sure to visit the DASH table and say hello!!
