Event Information

Grrr-ab your leashes and your four-legged best friend! The 20th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk steps off Sunday, September 30th at Brookside Park at the Rose Bowl. Join thousands of animal lovers and their canine companions for a fun-filled community dog walk and fundraiser.

Our goal this year is to raise $200,000 to help provide shelter, food, veterinary care and much more to the thousands of animals--domestic, exotic, wildlife and livestock--cared for every year at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. 

If you have questions or need assistance on Walk Day, ask our volunteers. Just look for anyone wearing a bright green tshirt.
