Animal Protection Society of Durham (APS) is excited to announce registration is open for the 2022 Walk for the Animals Event. An annual fundraiser, this year the Walk for the Animals is back in person on May 28th from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. The community is encouraged to register, raise funds and join us for the fun 1.5-mile walk around Duke University’s East Campus. The purpose of this community effort is to raise money and awareness for the nearly 4,000 homeless and neglected pets throughout the Durham community that rely on APS’s care.
Participants can register as individuals or as a team – recruiting friends, family and coworkers to join. Registration is available online through our Walk webpage: www.apsofdurham.org/2022walk. The Walk for the Animals this year promises to be fun for all ages with entertainment, food, adoptable animals, a children’s fun zone and even pet contests for Best Kisser, Best Look-alike, Best Trick, Biggest and Smallest Dog, and Best Dressed.
GFL Environmental and the Riefkohl Family are the 2022 Walk for the Animals Presenting Sponsors, along with Top Dog sponsors Broadway Veterinary Hospital and Verdesca Creative.
