Bring your friends (the furry ones too!) and help us celebrate the amazing partnerships of assistance dogs and the people who need them.

This outdoor, family-fun event includes a one-mile fundraising walk, live music, dog costume contest, assistance dog demonstration, dog-centric vendors and more.

Your fundraising helps us provide even more assistance dogs to people with disabilities, free of charge.

For extra fun, enter your dog in the dog costume contest, held on stage in the afternoon. Costumes can be creative, humorous or just plain cute. Winning dogs will receive some great prizes. Please make sure costumes are safe, comfortable and cool enough for a September day.
