Who do I contact if a donation does not appear on my fundraising page?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the person who made the donation and the amount (if known). We can look up in our database to see if your page didn't get credited and add the donation quickly.
How can I help fundraise for this event?
Walkers raise money for the animals at Seattle Humane by asking for donations from friends, co-workers, neighbors and family. Our online Tips & Tools will help guide you through the process. Your online fundraising page will help you keep track of your pledges and your goal, or use a printable donation sheet. We send thank you letters/tax receipts to everyone who donates if their information is provided.
Can I bring my dog?
Please do! Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome! More than 1,000 dogs will be in attendance, so we do not recommend bringing other types of pets. We encourage you to create T-shirts, posters, or bring a photo of your pet for the Walk if you aren't able to bring them in person. Please do not bring dogs in heat and make sure your leash is no longer than 6 feet.
Can my children participate?
Only if they are on a leash. KIDDING! Walk for the Animals is a family-friendly event and children are more than welcome. If a child under 12 years of age would like to raise funds, he or she may register as a Youth Participant online or by printed form. The top 3 Youth Participants will be awarded a special prize!
