Pasadena Humane Is Ready to ‘Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run’

Pasadena Humane’s annual Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run fundraiser will take place at Brookside Park at the Rose Bowl on Sunday, April 21.
This year marks the 26th anniversary of the community event. Since its inception in 1998, the walk has raised more than $5 million to help animals.
The family-fun fundraiser will offer options for a 1-mile or 5k walk or run around the Rose Bowl, along with a vendor expo with goodies and giveaways for pets and people, a doggy costume contest, an agility course, food trucks, and more. Attendees do not need a dog to join the fun — just a desire to help animals.
This year, the organization hopes to raise $250,000 for programs like the animal ICU, spay/neuter, foster care, a pet food bank, the Helping Paws pet owner assistance program and much more.
“The Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run is one of our favorite events,” said Dia DuVernet, president and CEO of Pasadena Humane. “Getting together with thousands of friends, supporters and of course dogs, for a life-saving day at beautiful Brookside Park — you can’t beat it!”
Animal lovers are encouraged to fundraise for the animals by registering as an individual or as part of a team on the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run website and asking family, friends, and coworkers for donations. Participants can win “paw-some” prizes and compete to take home the title of “Top Fundraiser,” “Top Donor” or “Top Fundraising Team.”
Registrants can choose to attend the in-person event or participate virtually. General and virtual registrations are $50 through noon on April 19. Onsite registration will be $65. All registered participants will receive a limited-edition Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run T-shirt, bib, dog bandana and medal.
