A fun-filled day uniting people and pets with one mission: Giving homeless pets a second chance.
The Walk for Animals is a 2-mile Walk for humans and furry friends of all shapes and sizes.
The Walk starts out in beautiful Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth, MN taking walkers around the lakewalk down into the heart of Canal Park and back to Bayfront again. This is the 26th year of fundraising, walking and having fun supporting homeless pets at the The Walk for Animals.
The Furry 5K is a 3.1-mile 5K race meant for runners, joggers, and couch-to-5Kers alike!
This 5K race is timed and runners will receive special race bibs! The route begins in Bayfront Festival Park and continues down the lakewalk to a designated turnaround spot where runners will turn tail and head back to Bayfront to cross the finish line. Race packet pick up date to be announced!
Prefer to hit the trail? Can't attend on June 2nd? Then the Virtual Furry 5K Fun Run is for you!
Register for our virtual 5K and your race packet will be mailed out on a designated date before the event. Virtual attendees will still receive all of the fun incentives included with our day-of 5K. Document your virtual 5K adventures and share images with the hashtag #furry5KV. Your images will be showcased online in our live hashtag widget!
All Walk for Animals and Furry 5K participants raise critical funds and awareness to help Animal Allies Humane Society provide homeless pets the quality care and kindness they deserve. Every dollar raised goes directly toward giving homeless cats and dogs the second chance they deserve!
Qualify for exciting prizes! Our Top Team, Top Individual, and Top Youth Fundraisers will receive special prize packages.
Every dollar raised supports Animal Allies' mission to ensure a loving home for every pet. No gift is too small...
