The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County

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

Start by creating your own personalized web page, right here.  Let your friends know why you care about animals, add a photo, and send a link to everyone you know.  It's the fun, effortless way to support homeless pets!   


Because of your support, the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is now able to find loving homes for every adoptable dog that enters the shelter.  The number of cats entering the shelter decreases every year, and fewer litters of kittens and puppies are competing for homes.  We are close to eliminating pet overpopulation in our community, and it is all because of you!   

With your support, each year more than 8,000 homeless animals are adopted or reunited with their owners, 1,200 orphaned, ill, or unsocialized pets are fostered, 8,000 pets are spayed and neutered for low-income owners, and more than 3,000 hungry dogs and cats are helped through our Emergency Pet Food bank.   

Your Dog-A-Thon pledges fund these life-saving programs.  They also provide medical care, food, shelter, bathing supplies, and many other essentials for shelter pets.  We couldn't do it without you!  

Thank you for helping animals and giving the most vulnerable among us a second chance at life.     

See you at the Dog-A-Thon!
