At this annual event, Best Friends Animal Society teams up with local shelters, rescue groups, and adoption agencies to help save the lives on homeless pets in the area. Walk participants can choose which organization their donations benefit:
Best Friends Animal Society
Furry Friends Rescue
NorCal Boxer Rescue
Ohlone Humane Society
Renegade Animal Welfare & Rescue
Rocket Dog Rescue
Silicon Valley Pet Project

Two Dogs Farm
Best Friends and their partner charities have set a fundraising goal of $140,000 for this year’s event. In addition to the 1-2 mile walk options, attendees are invited to enjoy a host of festival activities including pet-centric activities, vendors, and entertainment.
To avoid situations between reactive pets, the event asks that no cats be in attendance.
