Walk for Whiskers is starting NOW till Saturday September 21, 2024.

It’s time to “Walk the Talk” and join the Humane Society of Pinellas in the John R. Lawrence Pioneer Park for an outdoor festival featuring a one mile walk throughout downtown Dunedin, scavenger hunt, adoptable HSP dogs, paw selected vendors, doggie costume contest and pool pawty, games, giveaways, prizes and more!

Fundraise for the animals!

Walk for Whiskers benefits the Humane Society of Pinellas, Pinellas County's largest no-kill animal shelter, who found furever homes for over 1,400 pets in 2023.  You can help our mission by walking with us on 9/21/24 to raise awareness about your passion for animals, asking friends and family to donate and support your cause, or fundraise virtually.  AND you can start fundraising right meow!

Sponsor our Walk!
Taking the lead of the pack by sponsoring our event is the purrfect way to highlight your charitable giving in the community.  There’s also some pawsome benefits to highlight your contribution while also making an impact and helping HSP save more lives. Click here to learn more about sponsorships. 
Vend in the Park!

Join the fun at the park on Saturday September 21, 2024 and pawty with humans and their dogs while also raising funds for the cause.  Limited spaces available click to become a vendor. 

Be a PAWsport PAWtner!

Pawticipants and their dogs will stop at YOUR business to get a stamp on their PAWsport Saturday, September 21, 2024 for a chance to win more prizes!  Getting involved as a PAWsport PAWtner opens up more engagement opportunities for visitors at your stop and shows that you welcome us to Dunedin with open paws.  Psst…scavenger hunt?
