Dog-a-Thon 2014

The Humane Society's Walk for Homeless Pets

Saturday, July 26th 9am-2pm

Join more than 1,000 other animal advocates and their four-legged friends for Washington's biggest dog walk -- the 24th annual Dog-A-Thon!  Held at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood, this fun, family event has something for everyone:  A one-mile stroll or a four-mile hike, dozens of pet-related booths, demonstrations, contests, entertainment, a barbeque, and much more!  Best of all, the walk benefits homeless animals at the Humane Society.  Last year, the Dog-A-Thon raised $220,000 for our furry friends, and we need your help to raise even more in 2014.  More info here.


At Todd Field at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma

Saturday, August 2nd

The Dugan Foundation will present the eighth "Woofstock," which will feature lots of musical entertainment and nearly 200 pets looking for homes.

The event at Todd Field on the campus of the University of Puget Sound is free. Last year nearly 100 animals found homes in six hours.

More than 30 rescue and shelter organizations will will be at Woofstock. To be sure you get the right fit, there will be fenced meet and greet areas where everyone (including pets) can meet and play with adoptable animals. 

In addition to the dogs, cats, bunnies, birds and ferrets up for adoption, there will be pet related shopping and services.
