Support DHA while promoting your business—become a Walk for the Animals Vendor!
Tails Around the Tower, DHA's 22nd Annual Walk for the Animals, is a great opportunity for a business to show its support for our
mission and gain exposure. Vendors will have the opportunity to introduce their goods and services to a targeted audience—over 1,000 pet lovers were in attendance at last year's Walk for the Animals!
All businesses and nonprofit organizations who wish to be vendors at DHA's Walk for the Animals must register in advance by filling out and submitting a Vendor Registration Form and a Wavier of Liability/Vendor Participation Rules Agreement to DHA.
