Dog-A-Thon 2017

Bring your dog (or cat) for a walk in the park to raise money for
pets in need. The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is hosting its
27th annual Dog-A-Thon event on Saturday, July 22 in Lakewood’s Fort Steilacoom
Park.
The Dog-A-Thon is a South Sound tradition and is the largest dog
walk in Western Washington. More than a thousand animal lovers and their dogs
(plus a cat or two) meet up to enjoy a mild summer day stroll around Waughop
Lake.
In addition to the walk, attendees can sample delicious eats,
enter contests to show off their dog’s talents, see dog agility and herding
demonstrations and visit pet-related vendors and sponsors.
The Humane Society’s signature fundraising event helps the shelter
care for more than 8,000 animals each year. Donations raised through the
Dog-A-Thon provide vital support for innovative adoption programs, fostering
for under-aged litters of puppies, kittens and bunnies, treatment and
rehabilitation for victims of cruelty, veterinary care for injured animals and
many other services.
The Dog-A-Thon is the Humane Society’s largest fundraising event,
with this year’s goal to raise more than $300,000 for shelter pets in need.
