Washington Humane Society - Register Today for a Chance to be the Grand Marshal of the Walk! - September 27th

Register Today for a Chance to be the Grand Marshal of the Walk!

Are you the proud parent of an adopted WHS dog? Would you like the chance to strut your pup’s stuff as the Grand Marshal of the DC Walk for the Animals? Here’s your chance!

When you register for the Walk, simply enter your adopted dogs’ information, and you will be automatically entered for a chance to win this first-of-its-kind prize! The Grand Marshal and winning pup will help us to kick off the festivities for the day, and lead our Walk. PLUS you will each be adorned with a majestic cape and crown to motivate
the crowd in support of DC animals.


You don’t have to be a dog parent to participate in the walk – there is something for every animal lover at the DC Walk for the Animals & Pet-A-Palooza. Those of you that love your cats or even your pet rabbit or turtle should join us in this exciting event too! You can register and raise funds on behalf of your special pet and then walk in their honor. Everyone is welcome!
