COUPEVILLE, WA–Raise hope and funds at this year’s Wag ‘n’ Walk! Founded in 1990, WAIF is hosting its annual Wag ‘n’ Walk celebration of pets on Sunday, August 19th. New this year is a 5K Run and 1K Walk taking place from 10am-3pm at beautiful Greenbank Farm. The run/walk will start at 10am with the free festival fun taking place from 11am-3pm.
Anyone who is animal lover, walker, or a runner is encouraged to sign-up to help fundraise for Whidbey’s homeless cats and dogs. Proceeds raised will help provide compassionate care for shelter animals while they wait for their forever homes. Participants can register as individuals or as a team and compete against each other to see who raises the most for homeless pets! It’s $35 to register for the timed 5K Run and $25 for 1K Walk. Each paid registrant will receive a commemorative t-shirt showing their support and love for animals who deserve second chances for loving homes.
Many non-profit and pet rescue groups will be represented at the festival, along with many local vendors selling tempting things to buy and eat. Lots of fun activities too for dogs and families to participate in like bobbing for hot dogs, egg relay, ice cream eating contest, music, face painting. We’ll have vendors for the owners too with great food with a beer & wine garden.
Wag ‘n’ Walk is a joyous celebration of the rescue efforts of all adopters and supporters, and also an opportunity to share how one can make a difference of giving homeless dogs and cats a second chance.
