What is it?
The Walk-a-Dog-athon is a fundraiser for the 100% volunteer operated animal shelter in West Milford, NJ.  We are recognized by the ASPCA as a “must-see animal shelter” for the amazing work the volunteers do and high quality of life provided for the animals in our care.

How does it work?
Registration is free.  We ask a minimum donation of $10 per dog.  The goal is to obtain donations from your sponsors.  Walk with or without a dog, or have a relaxing day at home.  There's no minimum distance to walk.  Remember, it's a fundraiser.  Prizes listed below are awarded to those raising the most money for the WMASS, as determined at the end of the day of the event.  All participants in the walk will also receive a goody bag and bandana for their dog(s).  And a door prize for one human…$20 & a t-shirt!

Prizes listed below are awarded to those raising the most money as determined by the day of the event:

  • $400 JRC gift certificate (donated by JRC in West Milford)
  • $300 Shoprite gift certificate (donated by Inserra Corp.)
  • $275 Pet Photo portrait certificate (donated by Portrait Artistry by Linda Marie)
