Walk. Run.

Support the animals.

Save the Date 

Mark your calendars for May 6, 2023 at Esther Short Park for another great year of Walk/Run for the Animals.

Thank you 2022 Sponsors

Walk/Run for the Animals is our celebration of people and pets and it wouldn't be possible without our incredible sponsors! Sponsorships support more than the event, they make it possible for us to achieve our mission to rescue · return · restore · rehome · reconnect one animal at a time.

Thank you to our sponsors. We can't do it without you.
