2017 Walk for Animals

Saturday, August 12, 2017


Friends, everything online has been turned off! Preregister in person today at Nevada Humane Society in Reno until 6pm, or do it tomorrow, at the event, from 10am until 11:30am. Pick up your t-shirt at either registration too!  See you there!

Presented by Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota, the Walk for Animals is back! Normally, the Duck Race is held in August, but due to the raging Truckee River we are bringing back our Walk! Will you join us as we raise money and awareness for homeless pets?     

How It Works

Walkers register and gather pledges to support them as they make the two-mile walk around Sparks Marina. Walkers are then welcome to join in the festivities, including a raffle for a brand new car generously donated by Dick Campagni's Carson City Toyota! Festivities include adoptable pets, a carnival, vendors, food trucks and more! Friendly, on-leash dogs are welcome too! 

The most exciting thing is the chance to win a 2017 Toyota Corolla! Anyone can enter. Raffle tickets are $25 (this is separate from registration or pledges) and available at Carson City Toyota, Nevada Humane Society or at the Walk. Winner will be drawn at the event and doesn't need to be present to win. Winner must be 18, have a valid US driver's license and is responsible for all fees relating to the car. Raffle also available via phone to 775-856-2000 ext. 320.
