When registering for the Walk for the Animals you can participate as an Individual Walker or as part of a Pack (a team of 2 or more people). If you have a few friends, co-workers or family members that want to join you on Walk Day and are interested in raising money, this is a great way to get everyone involved. Companies also form Packs as a teambuilding exercise for their employees and a way of making their companies more philanthropic.
There is no minimum amount for Packs to raise, but there are incentives when Packs reach qualifying status. Each team becomes a qualifying Pack when they raise $1,500 collectively, but Packs always strive for more. Although $1,500 may sound like a lot of money, it's actually very easy to reach. Use your creativity and check out our Pack Leader Guide to see just how you can meet and exceed that goal.
When you reach Qualifying Pack Status by hitting the $1,500 mark, your Pack Perks kick in. Here are some of the special incentives you'll receive:
When your Pack reaches $5,000 collectively, every member receives entry into the VIP Tent on Walk Day to enjoy free food courtesy of Jimmy John's!
If your team has cash or check donations and you'd like to skip the lines on Walk Day, schedule a time to come in to the shelter for our Pack-Check-In / S'Wag Bag Pick Up dates. They are by appointment only and are scheduled for the following dates/times:
If your team has reached $1,500 or more collectively, you will also pick up a Pack Prize for each team member, your Pack Sign* to proudly carry at the Walk and schedule your Pack Photo. Each member of your Pack will also be awarded a Draws for Paws ticket to enter the prize drawing of their choice on Walk Day.
*Please email the design you'd like on your sign by Wednesday, February 20th so we can ensure it is ready when you arrive. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
