The COVID-19 pandemic has changed virtually everything this year about how we live and work. That’s why Humane Pennsylvania is holding a VIRTUAL Walk for the Animals this year, too!

Due to the uncertainty of our ability to bring thousands of people and pets safely together this year on September 12, Humane Pennsylvania is inviting you to support our work this July 24-26, 2020 with a one-of-a-kind Virtual 43rd Annual Walk for the Animals & Walktoberfest!

It’s just like our regular walk except we will all be walking together wherever we are over the course of three days. Walkers still get a real t-shirt (mailed), still get to walk with friends (by video or safe social distance), and still get to jam out to Walktoberfest (you can play whatever music you want)!

Just as importantly, you can help us raise very real and very needed funds for our critical work supporting animals and people in Berks and Lancaster Counties and across PA. The world may have stopped but our life-saving work didn’t.

As essential front line workers, Humane Pennsylvania and our hospitals stayed open, housing and adopting pets, providing emergency veterinary care, and distributing over 120,000 pounds of pet food and supplies since March 16 when the closures began.

Without donor support, especially during these times, we cannot offer any of these services. That’s why we are asking you for your help.

Register to walk virtually, form a virtual pack, become a sponsor, be a virtual vendor, make a donation, or purchase raffle tickets in support of this year’s 43rd Annual Virtual Walk for the Animals & Walktoberfest! The deadline to register to be guaranteed a virtual Walk t-shirt is June 30th.

Grab your sneakers, keep your distance, wear your mask and join us from wherever you are for the 43rd Annual Virtual Walk for the Animals & Walktoberfest to support homeless animals in Berks and Lancaster Counties and beyond on July 24 – 26, 2020.

Humane Pennsylvania’s Walk for the Animals & Walktoberfest is the oldest and largest animal welfare event in the region that attracts thousands of participants annually and is supported by animal lovers and their friends across the nation. For over 40 years, Walkers have been helping raise funds and awareness to improve the lives of animals and the people who love them – and having lots of fun doing it! And while this year’s Walk feels and looks different, the money it raises is no different, and frankly more important than ever.

Parking and entry to the Walk are normally free. However, this year’s event is virtual, but it still intends to raise vital funds to help homeless, abused, abandoned and neglected animals in southeastern PA. By pre-registering for the Walk and raising sponsorship funds from friends, co-workers and family, you will make a life and death difference for thousands of animals! Last year, approximately 1,500 Walkers raised $125,000. This year, we’re hoping that you and your friends can help us raise even more funds for the animals!

This is a free, family-friendly event and virtual this year. Registered Walkers get…

  • Commemorative Walk for the Animals & Walkoberfest t-shirt (which will mail to you this summer)
  • You can also join us as a VIP Walker and enjoy exclusive access to your own family-friendly beer and wine garden

Do even more for the animals and form a Pack! It’s the easiest way (and in our opinion, the most fun!) to raise funds for the Walk – rally your pack for a FUN-draising experience you’ll never forget.
