Walk, run, dance or scamper! Doggie Dash is BACK and a fun-filled celebration of the pets in our lives and a commitment to the animals who still need us! Before the Dash, raise critical funds to change lives. Then, celebrate the difference you’re making by joining us for our 1,2 or 3-mile stroll and fun run to help pets in need.

Make sure to stick around for tips and tricks with our expert Behavior and Training team and announcements highlight our amazing 2023 Doggie Dash paw-some fundraisers! We can’t wait to dash with you!
