Tails to Trails Dog Walk
Tails to Trails
and the 21st Annual
Walk for the Animals
Sunday, May 31st, 2015
11am to 2pm
Strafford County Courthouse
Save the date for our 21st annual walk for the animals! Join us from 11am to 2pm on the lawn of the Strafford County Courthouse in Dover, NH, just a short distance from the shelter. This event will once again be hosted by our friends Mark Ericson and Karen Kiley from WOKQ.
This year's event will feature demos, vendors, food, raffles, adoptable animals, and, of course, the walk for the animals. Once again, the walk will be led be some of our shelter dogs in need of homes. Taking place along the trails near the shelter, the 1-mile loop passes through the woods and along the Cocheco River. A shorter 1/2 mile loop along the road is also available for walkers looking for easier terrain.
The Tails to Trails dog walk is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. Last year, our sponsors and walkers helped us raise more than $18,000 for the animals!
We need your help to make this year a success. Pre-register online now to start raising money and you could be named our top pledge collector! Collect pledges individually or form a team with your friends, classmates, co-workers, or sports team. We will be awarding prizes for the top adult individual, youth (under 16) individual, adult team, and youth team. Not able to make it to the walk? That's okay! Fundraisers do not need to be present at the walk to qualify for prizes.
Don't forget to bring your four-legged best friend to the event! We'll have lots of fun activities for your pet, including an obstacle course. This year also marks the return of CANINE CAPERS - fun dog show featuring contests for best kisser, musical sit, and best costume. Enter your dog for one contest or take part in all three!
All dogs must be leashed at all times. Although this is a dog-only event, supporters without dogs are still encouraged to attend, collect pledges, and join the walk. Walk in memory of a past pet, in honor of a current pet, or even in honor of the many animals at the shelter looking for their forever homes.
