HRA Teaming with On Tap Magazine’s Wiener 500 Dachshund Dash For Post-Walk Festivities

Washington, DC – One of the great fall traditions continues, as the annual DC Walk for the Animals takes place on Saturday, September 30 at the Capitol Riverfront. The fundraising event includes a one mile walk around the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood to raise money for the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA), which serves animals and the people who love them. In 2016 alone, HRA touched the lives of 60,000 and tens of thousands of people. Onsite check-in for the event begins at 11 a.m., with the DC Walk for the Animals taking place at noon. Events will continue throughout the afternoon, concluding at 5 p.m.

The registration fee to participate in the Walk is $35. Walkers are encouraged to reach out to friends and family to form fundraising teams to support HRA and compete for recognition as the top fundraising individual or team. For additional information about the DC Walk for the Animals visit

Also, for the first time, HRA has partnered with On Tap Magazine’s Wiener 500 Dachshund Dash, which will take place following the DC Walk for the Animals. Walk participants are invited to stay and watch this very entertaining event along with a full slate of activities planned for participants after the Walk, including food and beverage vendors, exhibitors, live music, and a pet costume contest.
