Get your wag on for the at Humane Society Silicon Valley Walk-n-Wag fundraiser
Friends! Family! Neighbors! Corporations! Grab your leash! Get your dog! Grab your friends and neighbors! (well, if you know them well enough). It’s that time of year again!
Now is time to get your Walk~n~Wag team together so you can strut yo’ stuff at this year’s HSSV Walk~n~Wag Event to be held on Saturday. October 15 at History San Jose and Kelley Park in San Jose. This year’s fundraiser goal is to raise $165,000 to help house, feed and support all those loving, deserving dogs ( cats and rabbits too) long enough to find them forever-homes.
What is the HSSV Walk~n~Wag Event?
It is fun family and dog time 2K walk in Kelly Park, by individuals and groups to raise much needed operational finds for the Humane Society, Silicon Valley in Milpitas.
Individual walking categories include:
o Adult Walker (18+)
o Teen Walker (13-17)
o Kid Walker (7-12) and
o Virtual Walker ( don’t even have to show up – just make a donation pledge)
Did you know you can feed five (5) shelter animals for a day for just $5.00?
And there are Walk~n~Wag TEAMS who gather together to increase their pledge strength. You can form your own groups (neighborhoods, school, work, dog groups, etc), or go to the HSSV site to find already exiting teams you can join.
Just think of what you can raise if you team up with other concerned people and collect donations as a collective dog lovers group!
There is no fee to register for the walk, but walkers are encouraged to obtain pledges to help raise money for the shelter animals. All funds go towards the care of HSSV’s homeless animals.
And it’s not just a good cause and a fun walk with your fellow dog lovers, there will be a lot of entertainment to enjoy when you attend. Remember, there is NO FEE to attended and or participate in the event that includes:
o The 2K walk
o Dog agility demonstrations
o dog costume contests
o vendor booths and more
