2019 Walk for Animals was a HUGE success

posted in: Events | 0

Thank you everyone for joining us on Saturday!  Started out blustery, turned out to be a beautiful day.  Our community once again went the extra mile for CVHS and raised over $73,000 for the animals!  So many people came, so many dogs, we will have more details and photos soon, stay tuned!




TOMORROW is the day- rain or shine (it is not supposed to rain tho)! We are far away from making our goal, we need your help- there is still time to to raise funds from friends and family! Join us for this fun and festive event, our biggest fundraising event of the year. Celebrate your love of animals and help raise vital funds to support our life-saving work!

When: May 11, 2019  9:00AM – Noon
Where: Montpelier High School Field

Presented by Top Dog Sponsors:

Be a part of this 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 $80,000 and we simply can’t do it without you!
