Sniff out some fun at Humane Society Hound Hunt

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Come sniff out some fun on Saturday, May 15, when The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County’s Young Professionals Group hosts the “Hound Hunt,” a family-friendly scavenger hunt that will lead participants on an exciting journey throughout Indian River County.

Who knows where the day’s adventure will lead participants? Teams ranging in size from two to six people will meet at the Humane Society to get their clues and a toy animal “mascot” who’ll join their group.

Then they’re off for an afternoon escapade where participants must photograph their mascot at various locations worthy of different “points” throughout the county. The first team back to the Humane Society with the highest number of points wins.

An afternoon awards ceremony and picnic for all team members is planned for the afternoon.

Check-in for the Hound Hunt begins at 12:30 p.m. with the event starting at 1 p.m. and ending at 4  p.m. The awards ceremony and picnic immediately follows.

Registration is $10 per person. Dyer Subaru will even provide new vehicles to any foursome that registers for $100 and all proceeds benefit The Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank for families with pets in need.

Hound Hunt registration fees include participation, a commemorative T-shirt and the afternoon picnic in the shelter’s Volunteer Pavilion.

Hound Hunt sponsors include Vero Insurance, Dyer Auto, Kmetz, Nuttall, Elwell, Graham, PLLC, Stewart, Evans, Stewart & Emmons, The Indian River Press Journal, and Orchid Insurance.
