Local gym puts on Zumbathon to raise money for homeless pets

Local News

Dozens of people came out for Genesis Health Club’s Dance for Paws Zumbathon fundraiser Saturday.

The money raised from the event benefits Helping Hands Humane Society.

People were able to get a good work out and also had the chance to adopt a new pet.

We want to bring awareness to adoptable pets, homeless pets that need a home, said Group Exercise Coordinator Angie Hemsley. We want to provide a great workout and a great experience, but ultimately it’s about the animals, and we really want to raise money for Helping Hands.

Helping Hands Humane Society takes in over 6,000 pets every year and it takes over $1,000,000 to care for them.
