Pet Partners will host the fourth annual World’s Largest Pet Walk, where thousands of pet lovers will come together and celebrate their love for pets.
The annual World’s Largest Pet Walk will be held on September 25, 2021, and even you can join the cause!
To raise more than $100,000, Pet Partners, the country’s largest organization registering therapy dogs for animal-assisted therapies, invites thousands of individuals to put on their walking shoes and grab their leashes for the occasion.
This event is for everyone who wants to enjoy the health benefits of walking dogs while also helping to support Pet Partners’ Therapy Animal Program.
This year, Pet Partners has chosen a therapy animal team as their World’s Largest Pet Walk National Walk Champions.
Through their fundraising efforts, Roslyn Lindeman and her therapy dog Abbey have surpassed $10,000 in donations and are looking forward to walking with their family in Florida.
Participants are encouraged to walk at any time and location on Saturday, September 25.
Blue Shield of California, who will be supporting the event for a second consecutive year, and Dog Is Good for Good, forming a walk team for the first time this year!
The World’s Largest Pet Walk was organized to encourage worldwide participation with pets of all kinds, all on the same day. The Walk With Me program, an initiative of Pet Partners, aims to promote neighborhood group walks for arthritis pain management.
