Waggin Trail 2021 Success!
The Kentucky Humane Society’s 27th Annual WAGGIN’ TRAIL WALK FOR THE ANIMALS Virtual charity event was a huge success!
Thanks to support from kind and compassionate people like you, we were able to raise over $90,000 to help the shelter animals at the Kentucky Humane Society. While the event went virtual for the second year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to have a small celebration in-person with some of our amazing sponsors and vendors who make this event so special! Ethan, our 2021 Waggin’ Trail Spokesdog, led a Facebook Live event on Sunday, June 6 where we thanked all who supported KHS’ fundraising efforts and introduced some of our amazing sponsors/vendors.
In total, 433 individuals registered for Waggin’ Trail and 32 teams competed to raise money for KHS pets. Registrants came not only from Louisville this year but from all over the country! The Walk for Ethan and Friends Waggin’ Trail t-shirts were shipped to those who lived out of state, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have so many people from all over join us for this virtual walk.
We are excited to announce our fundraising winners from this year! A big congratulations to our Top Team, EthanAlmighty, for raising an incredible $14,365 for KHS animals. We also want to congratulate Rhonda Wanner for being this year’s Top Dog Fundraiser and raising $4,050.
During the Facebook live event that took place on Sunday, June 6, we had a raffle for those who registered and we are thrilled to announce our winners:
- Joanne Rich won a $100 gift card to Chewy
- Lisa Joyner won a $50 Chewy gift card
- DeETTA Starr won a cat-themed basket
- Nicole Knudtson won our dog-themed basket
- Cassie Keller won the Ethan Swag basket
