2019 Parade of Paws Pledge Walk
Come on up and help support the Spokane Humane Society by joining Spokane's largest dog walk! Bring your dog, family, co-workers and friends up for a fun 2- or 4-mile walk up Mt. St. Michael's. When you return, stay for the large vendor fair and the fun food court as well as live music by the Angela Marie Project.
Funds raised will help provide nutritional food, clean and safe shelter, play time and training, veterinary care and lots of love to our shelter animals.
* This is a pledge walk so everyone is asked to help raise money and collect pledges. You may do so online by creating a team here, or in person by grabbing a pledge form at the shelter, or downloading one from this page.
