May the Fourth be with You.

Online registration is now closed. General Adult and Kid Walkers can register at the registration table upon arriving at the Walk.

This year, the 47th Annual Humane Pennsylvania’s 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!

Join us on Saturday, May 4, 2024, from 10 AM to 3 PM at the historic Reading Fairgrounds in Leesport, PA! This is a family-friendly event and is open to animal lovers!

All Walkers who register by April 14 will receive an exclusive, one-time-only 2024 commemorative Star Wars Walk for the Animals t-shirt featuring HPA mascots Spike and Tilly as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia! Please note, registrations that are made for the Walk after April 14 are not guaranteed a t-shirt or the size you registered for due to limited supply.

Registration Levels:

  • Adult Walker- $25
  • Kid Walker (ages 17 and under) – $15
  • Virtual Walker – $30

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 FUNdraising experience you’ll never forget.

Upgrade to VIP Walker status (Very Important Pet-Lover) for $75 and enjoy access to our family-friendly beer and wine garden, delicious all-you-can-eat picnic buffet, special recognition in our program book, and an exclusive Walk for the Animals dog bandana.

Are you willing to go the distance?
