We are hopeful public gatherings will be safe again by the fall to return to Minto-Brown Island Park for the 9th Annual Walk-n-Wag. Save the date: September 18, 2021, 9 am – noon

We had so much fun with last year’s Walk-n-Wag UNLEASHED, that we will hold an online race as well, from August 15th-September 15th. Last year 85 participants from Oregon and beyond walked, ran, dog-paddled, and earned “footsteps” through positive actions that supported the well-being of people and animals in their neighborhoods. Together, participants covered 5,363 miles, and raised $7300 through registrations and direct donations. With the addition of generous community sponsorships, we raised over $18,000 to support Pet Peace of Mind ® and Bereavement Services at Willamette Valley Hospice.

Sponsorship opportunities are open now for 2021, Click here to learn how businesses and organizations can be part of this terrific community event.
