HAWS Pet Walkathon

9:00 am to 2:00 pm

Admission: Help the Friends of HAWS raise $40,000 for a new Animal Rescue van! Win prizes for doggie olympics, competitions and contests!

It's all about the Animals

​​Your participation and donations provide proper care, food, bedding, toys and lots of attention for the animals in need at HAWS, while they wait to find their new adoptive homes!  Funds are also used to support HAWS' humane education programs, which promote responsible pet ownership andprevent animal abuse.

There's more to do than just walk! Visit vendor booths and do some shopping, participate in contests and games, have a tasty lunch, meet adoptable pets from HAWS, enjoy meeting up with old friends and making new ones! Best of all, 100% of the money raised for this event goes straight to HAWS!
