EVENT DATE: JUNE 2, 2019

For the eighth year in a row, dedicated animal lovers are lacing up their shoes and hitting Riverfront Park to strut their stuff! 

This fun annual event brings together over 500 pet owners and pet lovers to raise funds for the dogs and cats of Willamette Humane Society.

You and your friends can help homeless dog and cats find their furever homes. Simply ask your friends to support you in the name of homeless animals. Our goal this year is to raise $5,000. It's ambitious, but we can do it together—for the animals, and for the people who love them. Together, we can give hope to pets like Jacob. 


JACOB'S STORY

Choosing to surrender an animal is agonizing choice. Jacob’s first mom suffered a debilitating medical emergency and could no longer care for him. Luckily, Willamette Humane Society was here. 

When Jacob got to the shelter, it was clear he had severe medical needs as well.  He had suffered for a while. He was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, a raging skin infection, and ear and eye infections that could require surgery

But he had you. It’s your generosity that meant instant relief for Jacob. He began treatment immediately. Remember that scene in Wizard of Oz when the Cowardly Lion goes through the beauty shop and comes out looking like a million bucks?  Imagine that, but with a blonde, 7-year-old, 45 pound, cocker spaniel. He looked and felt better almost immediately, and his sunny disposition has never wavered. 

Jacob had hope and luckily for him, our donors are experts at turning “hopes” into “homes”. He had place here with us until he found his perfect match. And he did—Jacob found his home in time to spend the holidays with his new family. 

Jacob’s story had a happy ending—and  there are thousands of stories yet to start here at Willamette Humane Society.  Our donors and supporters helped 2,800 pets find homes in the last year. 

Every dollar you raise will give hope helping the animals of 2019 find their new homes.

Now, let's go out and SAVE. SOME. LIVES!
