Walk-n-Wag Unleashed

This year we present the 8th annual Walk-n-Wag UNLEASHED - a virtual race.

Registration begins August 1, 2020.

The race and contests start on August 9 and ends September 17.

Join our poster dog, Memphis, and encourage all your pet- and people-loving friends to step out for hospice. You can walk, run, paddle, or earn “footsteps” through positive actions that support the well-being of people and animals in your neighborhood.

Proceeds will benefit the Pet Peace of Mind Program & Bereavement Services for adults and children.

For more information or to make a donation please contact Willamette Valley Hospice at or 503-588-3600.
