Click the Participant button below to register online. Can't register online? Send an email to [email protected] to receive a printable pledge form, then visit the registration booth at City Park (opens at 9:30am) on the day of the event with your completed form and pledges.

Start collecting pledges to celebrate 25 years of walking to help our homeless, neglected, and abused animals on the path to finding their forever homes. All proceeds raised will come back to the shelter to help us, help them. Want more of your donation to go to the animals? Donating and collecting pledges online reduces admin fees, so more of your donation will go to the animals.
