The Washburn University ALD chapter’s main focus of community service was on lending a “paw” at the local “Helping Hands Humane Society,” where homeless dogs and cats throughout the Topeka area are brought in and sheltered in hopes to one day have a warm home and loving family. 2010 was the first year the Shelter hosted “Tails on the Trail,” a 5K run/walk for both man and his best friend, and all proceeds from the event went to supporting the shelter as it gets ready to move to a bigger, newly renovated building to keep the animals safe.
