Our 2017 Walk-a-Thon event will be on Sunday, September 10th at the nearby Los Gatos Creek Park (South on Winchester and take a left on Hacienda)! It is the fourth time this important even will be held in September, so set your calendar for this new date and with your help, we will raise the funds to be used to help our volunteer staff and foster parents feed, heal, house and care for so many animals.

More details will be posted here and on our Facebook page as we get them. Interested in being a sponsor or volunteering for this great event? Email us for information! We will be accepting raffle donations until August 1st, and cash donations until August 15th. Sponsors who donate items worth over $150 or donate $100 or more will have their names posted at the event and printed on our commemorative event t-shirts distributed to all participants!

Don’t miss out! It will be a fun, relaxing day with a Doggie Costume contest, Parade of Heroes, prize raffle with lots of different prizes for dogs and cats (and humans!), lunch catered by Holy Cannoli, and of course, the walk! Collect pledges to help raise money for all our animals and come out for a day of fun events!

Pledges and raffle proceeds go directly to the care of our cats and dogs, so please help us raise money by asking your friends and family to donate to support you in your pledge drive! If you raise $25 or more by the date of the Walk, you will receive an official event T-shirt, a goodie bag and a delicious lunch from Holy Cannoli. Collect one of the top three pledge amounts and win additional prizes! Lunch and t-shirts can be purchased for a fee at the Walk, but we encourage everyone to download our pledge packet and get into the friendly competition.

Please note that unlike previous years we will not have foster dogs available to walk.

Why walk?

97% of all funds raised are spent directly on the animals! Your money goes directly to the care and placement of homeless cats and dogs through NARF’s NO KILL animal rescue programs such as Foster Care, Emergency Veterinary Assistance, Spay & Neuter Assistance, and Senior Pets for Seniors. NARF places hundreds of animals per year through ALL VOLUNTEER foster homes. Won’t you help us make a difference in the life of an animal in need?

  • $5 = 7 tickets
