Pets and People Get Healthy In Thomasville

By  | 

The 2nd Annual Healthy Pets and People event was held at the Thomasville Dog Park, offering residents and their pets a chance to exercise outdoors.

In addition to a one mile walk, event goers watched Thomasville Police K-9 demonstrations and took part in fitness exercises taught by the YMCA.

"We've got great parks here in Thomasville we've got a great walking trail at Cherokee Lake and this just expands the notion so you can bring your dog out to the dog park, the dog can get plenty of good health walking and socializing with other pets and it's a great thing for humans," said Kha Thomas of the City of Thomasville.

Free blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol screenings were also offered.

The event was sponsored by the City of Thomasville, the Health Department and the Thomas County Humane Society.
