Raising Money is Strictly Business



The 2014 Walk for the Animals at Huizenga Plaza in beautiful downtown Ft. Lauderdale is almost here. This year will be our 24th annual Walk and is presented by VCA Animal Hospitals and sponsored by PETCO Foundation. On March 1st, thousands of humans and their furry friends will take part in the 1.25 mile walk along the New River. The Walk is our largest fundraising event of the year, raising over $520,000 in 2013. This year, we’ve increased our goal to $530,000, which is where YOU come in. We aren’t quite there yet and we need your help. Walk for the Animals is free to the public with no required registration fee. Instead, we encourage participants to raise funds to support the shelter.

There are plenty of ways that you can help us reach our goal. The easiest way is to create a personal fundraising page at Walk4theAnimals.com and ask friends, family and co-workers to make donations. You and a group of friends can create a Pack or team, and if you raise a minimum of $1,500 your Pack will receive special perks on Walk day like…

– A Pack sign to carry with you
– A Pack photo
– Other great prizes

Help Us Reach Our Goal

Please share this Walk update with your friends by way of Facebook, Twitter, email, text and smoke signals.

Volunteers Needed

We are still in need of volunteers for Walk Day.

Ushers – 

Volunteers who manage the queue line at the Registration Tables.  Volunteers for this position should feel comfortable when they cheerfully and politely direct walkers to the correct line at Registration.  The check in time for Ushers is 6:30 a.m.

Some important information for anyone considering volunteering at our Walk:

  • We are only soliciting for adult volunteers.  Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome.
  • Although there is plenty of parking available at Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale, volunteers are responsible to carry the expense for parking.
  • Because it is a hectic morning, volunteers are required to keep their pets at home.
