When you register, you get your own personal fundraising page to make it easy-peasy to ask friends, family and coworkers to sponsor you! Registration fees help us afford the event and kick-start your fundraising, because supporting the animals is really what Walk & Wag is all about. We ask that everyone raise a minimum of $50 (more is appreciated!) to help sustain the work that we do for the animals all year round.
