Get your walking shoes on and grab a leash; it’s Wiggle Waggle Walk time! Animal lovers and their canine friends are invited to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA’s 17th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk – a community fundraiser for animals – at Brookside Park adjacent to the Rose Bowl. Organizers hope to raise $400,000 from the event, which will provide food, shelter and medical care to homeless animals, nearly 12,000 of which are taken in by the PHS every year. The Walk will start at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015.

Thousands of people and their dogs are expected to take part in the walk. Form a team, join a team, or register as an individual. Walkers can choose either a one-mile or three-mile route around the outside of the Rose Bowl stadium before enjoying a free Pet Expo at Brookside Park. Participants do not need a dog to join the fun, just a desire to help animals.

“The Walk is our biggest fundraiser of the year and so much fun for everyone,” says Carol Kirby, Chairman of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA’s Board of Directors. “It’s inspirational to see thousands of people and over a thousand dogs all gathered together to help the animals in our community.”

Participants are encouraged to fundraise for the animals by creating personal web pages through the Wiggle Waggle Walk website and asking family, friends and co-workers for donations. Non-walkers, and those unable to attend the event, can also create fundraising web pages through this site. Entrants who raise $75 will receive an official Wiggle Waggle Walk T-shirt. Registration is free.

Check-in starts at 8 a.m. at the entrance to Brookside Park. The walk will begin at 9 a.m. and the Pet Expo will be open until 1 p.m. The Pet Expo will feature K-9 demonstrations, a variety of pet product booths, food trucks, and canine contests. Brookside Park is located at 480 North Arroyo Blvd in Pasadena. Sponsors include Wells Fargo, VCA Animal Hospitals, and Boehringer Ingelheim. For more information, visit www.wigglewagglewalk.org.
