Pet Friendly Walk/Run for the Animals
Walk/Run for the Animals Same cause, different style. Due to coronavirus, Humane Society of Southwest Washington cannot have their usual "party in the park." But you can still support the dogs and cats! Create your fundraising page and ask your friends, family, anyone(!) to support the dogs and cats by making a donation. This year, walkers will have the option to start and stop at any of the route locations. It is a circular path through the heart of downtown Vancouver. The running path can be wherever you choose. All dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. Leashes should be no more than six feet in length while on the course. Flexi-leads or “extend-a leashes” are NOT allowed. Both runners and walkers will receive an event bag as well as a custom 30 year anniversary commemorative medal! See Details
Pet Friendly Doggie Dive
Doggie Dive What's it like when more than 200 dogs take to the pool in one afternoon? It's a wet and wild time! Each fall, on the last day of outdoor pool season, Lake Shore Athletic Club opens its pool to the community of dog lovers. This event offers something for every dog: seasoned swimmers can fetch and dive in the big pool while small dogs or inexperienced paddlers can take a dip in the wading pool. See Details
