2012 Tails Around the Tower, DHA's Walk for the Animals

About the Walk

Tails Around the Tower, Delaware Humane Association’s 24th Annual Walk for the Animals, will be taking place on October 5, 2014 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. This year animal lovers and DHA supporters will again be gathering for DHA’s biggest fundraiser of the year at Rockford Park in Wilmington, DE.

The approximately one-mile walk around the park by dogs and their people is just one part of this event—a fun atmosphere, dressed-up dogs, music, refreshments, pet-oriented vendors, the always popular Pet Contests, and more make this a perfect outing for the entire family.

Mike Rossi from WSTW will also be on hand to add his special brand of humor to the festivities, and adoptable dogs from DHA will be in attendance—who knows, you just might find yourself a new friend that you want to take home!

Proceeds from the Walk for the Animals support DHA’s mission as it is carried out throughout a four state area. In order to continue carrying out this mission, your support is needed. Since fundraising is the goal of the Walk, we ask (but not require) that all participants raise at least $50 in pledges. Walk as an individual, or gather your friends, family and coworkers to form a team!

Can't join us at the Walk or fundraise but still want to show your support? You can donate to the Walk without registering to attend on DHA's website, or donate to any individual or team fundraiser on DHA's Walk event page on Crowdrise!

Don't take your dog for a walk... Take your Walk for a Dog

Wooftrax - Support DHA just by walking your dogThis year, we're encouraging Walk participants to raise even more money for the animals at DHA just by using an app on your smartphone called Wooftrax during the Walk, and beyond!

For every mile you walk, Wooftrax will donate to DHA or the shelter or rescue organization of your choice. The more you take your dog for a walk, the money is donated! Get the app >>
