Walk for Animals
Get your wag on at the 2019 Walk for Animals

The Walk for Animals brings together more than 9,000 people and 3,000 animals to wag, walk, and raise funds for homeless animals across Minnesota. Every dollar raised helps provide medical treatment, behavior rehabilitation programs, and nurturing care to more than 23,000 animals who come into our four Minnesota shelters each year.

The 2019 Walk for Animals is Saturday, May 4 at AHS Golden Valley!
