Animal lovers are invited to put their best feet forward at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA’s 15th annual Wiggle Waggle Walk – a community fundraiser for animals – at Brookside Park adjacent to the Rose Bowl.
Organizers hope to raise $400,000 through the event, which will provide food, shelter
and medical care to homeless animals, nearly 12,000 of which are taken in by the
humane society every year. The walk will start at 9 a.m. on Sunday, September 29.
Thousands of people and their dogs are expected to take part in the walk, which begins
at 9 a.m. Walkers and their dogs 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 the
park. Participants do not need a dog to join the fun—just a desire to help animals—and
they can walk individually or form teams.
“The Wiggle Waggle Walk is a fun event that brings everyone together to help animals in
need,” says Steve McNall, president and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society &
SPCA. “This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We would not be able to provide the
level of care to all the animals without the community’s support.”
