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, dog costume contest, dog-centric vendors, food, music, and more.

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

Register as a team or an individual or make a donation to support your friends and family!

  • Face Painting - Cost is $3 or $6 each depending on design.  Cash only.
  • Paw Print Paintings—Put your dog's pawtistic abilities to the test with a Paw Print Painting.

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. Your dog can wear the costume during the walk or just get dressed for the contest ... you choose! Please make sure costumes are safe, comfortable, and cool enough for a September day.
