Local 10 News’ Jacey Birch wants South Florida animal lovers to join her team

The Humane Society of Broward County will be hosting their annual Walk for the Animals Saturday morning in Fort Lauderdale. 

This year's cover dog for the event is Ruby, a 3-year-old Australian Shepherd from Hollywood, who will appear on walk brochures and posters.

The event's goal is to raise $575K for the shelter, veterinarian services and educational programs. As of Friday afternoon, the non-profit organization had about $428K. 

Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Huizenga Plaza, 32 E. Las Olas. The 1.25-mile walk is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. For more information or to donate to the effort, click here for Birch's donor drive page.
