Join thousands of animal lovers on Saturday, March 1, 2014 for the 24th Annual Walk for the Animals in beautiful downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The festivities will begin at Huizenga Plaza and the 1 mile walk will continue through the downtown streets and along the New River.
Walk for the Animals is the Humane Society of Broward County’s largest annual fundraiser and has grown tremendously since its inception 24 years ago.
The first walk welcomed fewer than 100 people and a handful of dogs. However, in 2013 there were over 5,000 people and 2,000 dogs that helped raise over $521,000 (net) for the animals at the Humane Society of Broward County. Each year we see amazing growth and support from all around South Florida. It is because of the support from our participants and sponsors that we are able to help thousands of homeless dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, bunnies, and more find their loving forever homes.
Walk for the Animals is free to the public with no required registration fee. Instead, we encourage participants to raise funds to support the shelter. The more money a Walker or Pack raises the more goodies they get to pick up on Walk day.
