It's Time to Plan for This Year's Walk!
2014 Waggin' Trail Walk for the Animals
Saturday, May 17 at The Parklands at Floyds Fork
Call your friends, grab your leash and join us for the 20th annual Waggin’ Trail Walk for the Animals benefiting the Kentucky Humane Society on Saturday, May 17th from 9a.m. - 1p.m. at the Parklands of Floyds Fork.
Come out and enjoy a leisurely stroll with Fido and be surrounded by hundreds of area pet lovers on a journey to save lives and celebrate the human-animal bond. In addition to the walk, there will be food, music, booths and lots of family friendly activities. Please Note: There will be no timed run this year.
Start fundraising today! When friends and family members sponsor your run or walk at WAGGIN' TRAIL, the funds go directly to the Kentucky Humane Society's proactive adoption, education, and spay/neuter programs. When you ask for donations and support, saving a life truly can be a walk in the park. Every donation, large or small, will help an animal in need at KHS.
Not sure how to start? This fundraising kit will help you meet your goals for the walk.
- $50 provides one day’s worth of food and water to 25 pets in our care
- $100 provides supplies for 10 surgeries in our high-quality, donor-supported SNIP clinic
- $250 provides a medical exam, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and micro-chip for one needy pet
- $500 pays for one heartworm positive dog to receive medication
- $1000 pays the bills to rehabilitate an abused or neglected pet
Without events like the Waggin’ Trail, KHS wouldn’t be able to serve the thousands of homeless pets they do each year. In 2013, KHS set a record and found homes for more than 6,300 pets, saved over 200 animals with our Help-Me-Heal Fund, educated more than 5,000 children about responsible pet owner and since opening in 2007, our S.N.I.P. Clinic has performed more than 60,000 spay/neuter surgeries on owned pets.
The Top Fundraiser this year will receive the ultimate bragging rights by having his/her dog(s) professionally photographed and featured on the 2015 Waggin’ Trail poster!
Registration is $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event, so make sure you register early! From your personal fundraising page, you can tell your story, upload photos, email friends, accept and track donations, and monitor your progress.
On behalf of the thousands of animals saved by the Kentucky Humane Society each year, thank you! We can’t do it without you.
