Last week, the team from Pillar Properties joined our residents to participate in the 15th Annual Furry 5K at Seward Park.
This fantastic event is a fundraiser for the Seattle Animal Shelter, which takes in approximately 6,000 stray and owner-surrendered animals each year. Because so many of these animals are in need of significant vet and behavioral care, the Seattle Animal Shelter created the Help the Animals Fund in 1977. Two-legged and four-legged friends walked and ran together around the park, enjoying views of Lake Washington all along the way.
Hopefully you were able to stop by the Pillar Properties tent, where Regan, Megan and Genevieve were handing out treats.
Overall the Furry 5K was a huge success and our residents who participated not only got to support a great cause, they spent a gorgeous day outside with other animal lovers.
If you missed the walk, but want to support the Help the Animals Fund, you still can. Just visit this donation form.
“Pillar Loves Pets Month” is our annual chance to celebrate the canines and cats that make our lives a little more fun. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be hosting and participating in all kinds of special events for both our furry and non-furry residents.
We’ll kick the month off right on June 8, participating in the Seattle Animal Shelter “Furry 5K” Fun Run and Walk around Seward Park. Join your fellow neighbors, and thousands of other folks from around the Puget Sound, as we run and walk with our dogs to raise money for the Seattle Animal Shelter. Ask your front desk for a special promo code that gets you $10 off registration fee. Sign up here.
On June 9, we’ll launch the 2nd Annual Pillar Loves Pets Photo Contest. Send in a pic of your little buddy and have your friends vote on their favorite submissions. Last year, we were on adorable overload, receiving shots with everything from cute kitties to precious puppies. Follow your building on Facebook to get all the details.
Last year, hundreds of our residents and neighbors voted, choosing Bowser and Tigger as the cutest pets in the Pacific Northwest, followed closely by Biscuit and Crackers. Like last year, winners will receive $250 and $50 gift cards, so get those photos in. Enter the contest here on June 9.
We’ll also be hosting our own benefit for the Seattle Animal Shelter. Throughout the month, look for the big collection bins in the building. Drop a few cans of dog and cat food in the box and we’ll make sure they get to the Seattle Animal Shelter.
We love your pets at Pillar Properties. Enjoy this month as we celebrate all they bring to the community.
