The 2021 in-person Dog Walk & K-9 Festival will be replaced with a virtual walk fundraiser for 2021 due to COVID-19.

Our favorite event of the year may be different, but we are excited about our first-ever virtual event!

Our virtual walk is a month-long fundraiser during July and August. Register now for FREE! Get the details on the event Go Fund Me site.

What is a virtual walk?

A virtual walk is the safest way for us to hold a fundraising walk without getting everyone together in one place and time. 

You can choose where and when you walk, you can walk with or without a dog or other pet, you can even walk in the rain if it makes you happy! We encourage you to walk for animals in any way that suits you while making sure you're following best practices for your personal health and safety, and the health and safety of those around you.

We've partnered with Kalamazoo County Parks and Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy to promote their beautiful parks and trails, all of which are pet-friendly. Take a look at their websites to find your next walking route!

How do I register?

Registration is FREE for everyone! All we ask is that you commit to raising $50 toward our fundraising goal of $50,000. Of course, we'd love it if you were able to raise more! 

Start your journey on the GO FUND ME event page where you can register, create your personal fundraising page, and invite friends and family to donate to your personal fundraiser for KHS.

If you have offline donations to collect, use the Donation Collection Form to keep tracks of donations given to you directly.
