Out & About: Two legs and four beat a path to Humane Society's Whisker Walk

| Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

Two legs or four, all were welcome in Twin Lakes Park on Oct. 28 for the annual Whisker Walk to benefit the Humane Society of Westmoreland County. Given the proximity to Halloween, many humans and animals alike took to the path in costume. The event kicked off with a little morning refreshment and wrapped up with prizes and plenty of treats for kids and pets, but no tricks.

WHISKER WALK: 'Sophie', a chihuahua owned by Deana Pastor, rolled out of bed in her curlers and robe for the Humane Society of Westmoreland County's annual Whisker Walk, held at Twin Lakes Park on Saturday morning, October 28, 2017.
