Wiggle Waggle Walk Updates

The Wiggle Waggle Walk is less than three weeks away! We are thrilled that we have raised more than $165,000 but we still need your help to reach our $400,000 goal!

This year, we are offering a VIP Check-In and VIP Tent exclusively for walkers and donors who raise $1,000 or more by the day of the Walk. These VIP guests will have their own registration table to expedite the process, as well as a special tent with fans, complimentary beer, wine, soda, snacks, and a red carpet photo opportunity with your pet (including bow ties!).

Last, but not least, what would the Wiggle Waggle Walk be without fun doggy contests? This year we have two contests:

  • The Pet Fashion Show — open to any dog who wants to strut their stuff in a costume. A prize will be awarded to the dog in the best costume.
  • Dog and Owner Look-Alike contest. Which dog looks like it’s owner? (Or is it the other way around?) Dressing up is allowed.

If you would like to register your pet for one of the contests, please email events@phsspca.org noting which contest you would like to enter and the registration form will be sent to you.

There’s still plenty of time to create a team or walk as an individual. Sign up today at www.wigglewagglewalk.org and help animals in need!
