Pasadena Humane Society’s 19th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk! @PasadenaHumane
email banner

No plans this Sunday? Then put your best foot and paw forward for the Pasadena Humane Society’s 19th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk!

Our goal is to raise $300,000 for animals in need, and you can help us get there by registering today!

Just dig up $25 and register now at (open until 11:55 p.m. Saturday) or roll over Sunday morning and join us at Brookside Park.

Your registration fee will get you an event T-shirt, official bib, and sporty bandana for your best pooch pal. Day-of registration is payable by cash, check or credit card, but we kindly ask that you do not bring $100 bills if possible. An ATM is located near the registration area. (We will not be able to issue receipts that morning, but you will receive one for your donation following the Walk.)

On-site registration begins at 8 a.m. and the Walk starts at 9 a.m. Following is a fur-tastic line-up of activities for the whole family—two- and four-footed alike!

after registration closes at 10 a.m.

KTLA Channel 5’s Lu Parker will be our emcee for the day, with Emmy-nominated actress Carolyn Hennesy on hand to help start the walk and judge our Canine Couture Costume Contest.

Sunday’s forecast will be beautiful! Sunny but with only a high of 82 degrees, and no sign of it raining cats and dogs! Here is the hour by hour weather forecast for the event:

8 a.m. (Registration and Event Festivities Open) – 63
9 a.m. (Walk Begins) – 67
10 a.m. – 72
11 a.m. – 76
12 p.m.  (Event Festivities Conclude) – 79

There will be six water stations on the route and more water for humans and dogs at Brookside Park. But it’s always a good idea to bring extra. Don’t forget sunscreen and be sure to keep your dog on leash at all times.

You can choose to do either the three-mile or the one-mile walk on Sunday. But please use your best judgement as to what distance is right for you and your pet given the weather conditions.

Click here for the route map.

A human first aid station will be located next to the PHS Information Booth, and pet first aid can be found at sponsor tents 1, 2, and 3 (VCA Animal Hospitals).

Parking is FREE and is available in Lot I at the Rose Bowl, adjacent to Brookside Park. Click here for a parking map

It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year, so you don’t want to miss out and end up in the dog house!

See you at the Walk!
