Walk, wag and win at the Toronto Humane Society’s largest event and fundraiser.


This is the FIRST STEP to begin raising funds for the animals. Follow the steps to register as an individual or team, then set a goal and begin fundraising for the animals!  Really, it's that easy!


Even if you are not able to participate on August 23rd, you can still show your support for the cause by sponsoring someone you know. You'll help them meet their personal fundraising goal, and feel great about helping to provide care for the tens of thousands of animals touched by the Toronto Humane Society each year.  


Can’t participate and don’t know anyone walking? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Donating is easy and worthwhile, and your gift will support the many abandoned, abused and injured animals being cared for at The Toronto Humane Society right now. 

All gifts of $20+ will automatically receive a tax receipt.

How Does it all Work?

WALK: Raise money by collecting pledges from your colleagues, friends, family and fellow animal lovers.  Then join us on Sunday August 23 at Woodbine Park as we walk the scenic trail through Ashbridge’s Bay Park to raise awareness about homeless animals in our community and the services provided by the Toronto Humane Society. 

WAG: Bring your four legged friend with you to the event.  Not only will you be able to walk together, there will be plenty of fun activities for you and your dog.  Expect everything from homemade dog treats and pampered pooch mini make-overs to a photo booth and splash area.
