Tails Around the Tower, DHA's 25th Annual Walk for the Animals

About the Walk

WSFS Bank proudly invites you to Tails Around the Tower, Delaware Humane Association’s 25th Annual Walk for the Animals, at Rockford Tower in Wilmington, DE! Due to inclement weather, this event has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 1, 2015 from 10 am to 1 pm.

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.

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

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!

This year we invite you to walk in memory or honor of a person or pet who is special to you.You're encouraged to bring a photo and write a message on the Memorial Banner.

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!
