Join us, and thousands of animal lovers across the US and internationally, for the region’s oldest animal welfare fundraising event!

47th Annual Walk for the Animals

Saturday, May 4, 2024 | Reading Fairgrounds, Leesport

This year, the 47th Humane Pennsylvania Walk for the Animals falls on Star Wars Day, May 4, so we’ve decided to go all in on the Star Wars theme! Break out your Han Solo costume, twist up those Princess Leia buns, dress up your dog as Chewbacca, and come to the bark side!

Online registration is NOW OPEN! Walk registrations raise vital funds to help animals in our care and community.  All Walkers who register by April 8 will receive an exclusive, one-time-only, commemorative Star Wars Walk for the Animals t-shirt featuring HPA mascots Spike and Tilly as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia!

Together, we can provide animals with shelter and lifesaving medical treatment, help families adopt new pets that need homes, rescue animals from emergency situations, and so much more. In the coming year, we will care for thousands of animals in need! By joining the Walk for the Animals, you’ll help give each one the second chance they deserve!
