Mark your calendars! Walk for Animals will be on June 2, 2018 at Montpelier High School, 9am-noon. Please help save animal lives! Join in the fun of our biggest fundraising event of the year. It’s a family-friendly, dog-friendly event with contests, prizes, and an easy 2 mile walk through beautiful downtown Montpelier. Friendly dogs on leashes are welcomed but you don’t need to bring a dog to participate.
All funds raised will help provide food, shelter, exceptional care, and find loving adoptive homes for over 1,000 companion animals in the coming year. Your contributions and efforts will directly save animal lives. This year our goal is $70,000 and we simply cannot do it without you!
Enjoy a gentle 2-mile walk through beautiful downtown Montpelier, and fun activities for dogs and the whole family both before and after the walk. Free Refreshments will be available! Bring your dog, your friends, and your family.
