The 2013 March for the Animals is on September 28!

What is the March for the Animals?

The March for the Animals is our biggest fundraising event of the year! The March is a "friend- raiser"  -- like a Relay for Life, an AIDS Ride, or a Women Swimmin’, the success of the March relies on the power of exponential participation. 10 people asking 10 friends for 10 dollars adds up very quickly to $1,000 for the animals at the shelter who need it.

The money you raise goes towards the medical care of the nearly 3,000 animals who rely on us every year! Click the Register Here button to start!

To Join the March, Register Online (click here) or offline(click here for links to forms) (you will choose your t-shirt size when you register)

The registration fee is $10  and the fundraising minimums for participants are $100 for people who are 16 and older or $50 for those under 16.

You may join or create a team. Each team member needs to register and each team member needs to raise their individual minimum.

Once you have reached your minimum fundraising goal, you may pick up your t-shirt at any of our t-shirt pick up times or on the day of the March itself!
