18th Annual Walk for the Animals

Sunday, June 10, 2012


Thanks for joining our 18th Annual Walk for the Animals! This event is HSCC's biggest fundraiser of the year. Our goal for online fundraising is $35,000. Can you help? Just click "Fundraise" to set up your own fundraising page, then get the word out using social media and email.

Every dollar you raise will benefit the well-being of Chittenden and Grand Isle counties' animal population--whether to help us feed, clean, and provide veterinary care for homeless animals; to maintain the shelter that houses them; to fund the staff that finds them new forever homes; or to offer educational programs for the public that raise the standards of care for thousands of pets. You can help us make a BIG difference!

The Walk is all about having fun. Bring your dog(s), bring your friends and family, bring your smile!

Registration opens at 10:00 AM at Battery Park on Sunday, June 10. The Walk begins at 11:00 AM, and will follow a mile-long course along Burlington's waterfront. Upon returning to the park, grab a a bite at our giant cookout (provided by Wunderbar Catering), snag some free Ben & Jerry's, and treat your pooch to a fancy cookie courtesy of Andy's Dandys. Local bands Dented Personality and Sideshow Bob will provide live music, and our in-house dog trainer, Whitney Doremus, will host a free Q&A session from the stage. Around 40 local vendors will join this event, so be sure to browse their booths for the best deals in pet supplies, services, and art! Enjoy the festitives until 3:00 PM.

Thanks again for helping us make this year's Walk an enormous success. It'll do our animals worlds of good!
