On Saturday, May 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., AWLA will once again host its annual Walk for the Animals. A perennial favorite, this event brings together more than 600 local animal lovers and their canine companions for a walk to benefit AWLA shelter animals and support the services and programs that the League provides to the community.
This year, for the first time, AWLA is hosting the Walk and related festivities at the shelter, allowing us to showcase the work we do, where we do it, and, most importantly, the animals in our care.
Walkers will have their choice of two routes, a three-mile walk or a one-mile stroll. Both will begin and end at AWLA.
Participants can enjoy tours of the shelter, meeting adoptable animals, amusements including a balloon artist, a face painter, and a bouncy house, dog training and trick demonstrations, a doggy costume contest, music, a photo booth, food trucks, vendors, and more!
Since its beginning, more than 20 years ago, the Walk has raised life-saving funds that have provided critical medical care, food, shelter, training and adoption services for tens of thousands of League animals.
The Walk for the Animals is the League’s biggest fundraiser, and this year’s fundraising goal is $85,000.
Once registered, you will be directed to create a personal fundraising page.
