Fundraising Events for Pet Lovers

Pet lovers, this one is for you! It’s time to dust off your tennis shoes, grab that leash and get outside for a great cause!

More than 3,000 people and dogs, outfitted in their favorite sports jerseys, will tackle pet homelessness with a 2k and 5k walk at the 21st annual Walk to Save Animals on Nov. 2nd. While team rivalries are encouraged among fundraisers, all money benefits a uniting cause – to raise $150,000 for homeless animals in Arizona. AAWL is the state’s oldest and largest no-kill animal shelter. It rescues, rehomes and rehabilitates more than 4,000 animals every year from around the state. In addition to the walk, attendees can visit the pet marketplace with animal-friendly vendors, meet adoptable dogs and partake in an alumni parade.

Just some of the event features outside of the 2k and 5k walk include:

  • photo booth for your dog with Santa
  • $5 microchips and ID tags (each)
  • a K9 agility and lure course for pets to try out
  • food trucks
  • tailgating with a beer garden
  • marketplace with more than 15 pet food and product vendors handing out samples
