Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge

The fundraiser is simple:
1. Walkers register and collect donations from friends, family, neighbors, etc. 
2. Walkers and dogs gather for a fun-filled day of activities, including demonstrations, a doggy costume contest, cider & donuts, trick or treating for attendees and dogs, vendors, lunch, and more.
3. Participants also collect prizes and incentives for reaching certain fundraising levels. 

Registration fees help us pay for the event and make certain that your donations go further to help the animals. 

The registration fee is $25 per person, with children 12 and younger free. 

The adult registration fee includes an event t-shirt, lunch, goody bag, access to the doggy ice cream eating contest sign-up and doggy costume contest sign-up, trick or treating, and cider and donuts. Lunch can be purchased for children 12 and younger for $5. 

In addition to helping CAHS to save the lives of more homeless animals, you can earn incentive prizes based on the amount of fundraising you do.
