As an animal lover and pet guardian I have donated to the SPCA for years. Three years ago we attended our first Doggy Dash. Thanks to Facebook and the SPCA Doggy Dash electronic donation process soliciting donations is easy. Chances are your closest family and friends are animal lovers and supporters too and I’m grateful for their support of our efforts. Bella Rose, Scott and I enjoy the actual event as well. It’s fun to see so many happy dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds in one place. Some in costume! William Land Park is beautiful and the walk is broken into 2 lengths so it’s easy for the active dogs/people to break out to the longer portion and the rest of us on the shorter route. There are plenty of vendors to check out after the walk, lots of clean porta potties (important!) and event food trucks. We look forward to attending in the future and like knowing we help support homeless animals in our area. Win Win.

Doggy Dash 2018 Raises More Than $254,000!
Because of the generous support of our sponsors, team and individual fundraisers, donors, pet product vendors, food/beverage vendors, registrants and festival attendees, we are pleased to announce that the 2018 Doggy Dash raised over $254,000, with participant fundraising/registration generating just under $168,000 to directly support care for the animals.
This year’s 25th Anniversary Doggy Dash celebration was not only met with perfect weather, but also proved to be the most successful in Dash history and enjoyed by all in attendance.
If you missed out on this year’s event, be sure to keep your calendar open for next Spring to attend the 26th Annual Doggy Dash.
