On weekends now through Aug. 2, families are invited to take part in a scavenger hunt and raffle organized by Animal Rescue of Tracy.

High school students involved with the nonprofit started painting rocks last summer with messages and pictures of dogs and cats. Some of the nearly 100 rocks are now on display at businesses around the mall, and people can pick up a free map and start tracking them down.

The rocks should not be touched, but rock hunters can enter a gift basket raffle by returning their map with a receipt for $5 or more from a participating store.

Maps are available at the Animal Rescue of Tracy adoption center at the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. Hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and noon-4 p.m. Sundays.

The painted rocks will make another appearance at Animal Rescue of Tracy’s planned dinner-dance on Oct. 3.

For information: contact@animalrescuetracy.org, 642-4324.
