Event Details

Saturday, October 3, 2020, with virtual activities from 11 a.m.-12 p.m.

Your community or neighborhood

The fundraiser is simple:

  • Participants register and collect donations from friends, family, neighbors, etc.
  • Participants collect prizes and incentives for reaching certain fundraising levels. 
  • Participants and dogs tune into the Capital Area Humane Society website to view our virtual Walk activities at 11 a.m.
  • Participants and dogs walk in their neighborhood.

Registration fees make certain that your donations go further to help the animals. 
The registration fee is $25 per person, with children 12 and younger $10, and includes an event t-shirt and goody bag.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we need your help, now more than ever, to ensure we can continue to provide exceptional care to animals. In addition to helping CAHS to save the lives of homeless animals, you can earn incentive prizes based on the amount of fundraising you do.
