Nearly 600 dogs walk, wagged and ran to help others

And more love…

Walk & Wag and Run

So much love that you helped raise over $285,000 for the homeless, injured and abused animals in our community. Awww… yeah! The money you helped raise goes to help animals like Dixon, this year’s Celebrity Spokesdog, who came to HSHV in need of a lot of medical care and TLC. He got it… thanks to you, and was feeling the love at Walk & Wag!

And… what’s that?

Walk & Wag and Run

You broke the record on attendance this year! Nearly 1,400 (1,396 to be exact) people and 585 dogs came out Saturday to show their support. We’re not sure whether to thank the dogs more or the people more. How about both?

You must be dog tired.
