About the Walk for the Animals

In its 31st year, the Walk for the Animals has become a highly anticipated event in Broward County, Florida. It is a day of celebration for our loyal Walkers, thanking them for their months of hard work fundraising to help support the animals in our care and the programs and services that we offer.

2020, we welcomed over 5,000 people and about 2,000 of their furry friends. Participants gathered at Downtown Fort Lauderdale's Huizenga Park, enjoying live music, a pancake breakfast courtesy of IHOP, Purina Incredible Dog demonstrations, games, giveaways and over 40 booths to visit. The 1.25 mile Walk is optional, but thousands participated, walking through Downtown Fort Lauderdale and along the scenic New River.

Because of the generosity of our community and local businesses, the 2020 Walk netted over $570,000 and we're ready to beat that number for 2021. Registration will be open for our 2021 event in October, 2020. We welcome people (and pups) of all ages to register, fundraise and join us to Walk for the Animals!
