DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Oct. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL)’s largest annual fundraiser, Walk To Save The Animals, is back for its 24th year. The 5K and 2K walks, activities, demonstrations, and marketplace will take place the morning of Saturday, November 5, 2022, from 8 AM to noon at Tempe Beach Park in downtown Tempe, Arizona.
Walk to Save Animals is a pet-friendly and family-friendly event. There will be food trucks, arts and crafts, a marketplace, and a puppy kissing booth, where attendees can get a smooch from an adorable rescue dog. Leashed, well-behaved pets are welcome. Pet events will include an activity play zone, dog training and agility demonstrations, and pictures with Santa.
The event will kick off with 2K and 5K walks to raise funds for the shelter’s life-saving programs, including low-cost veterinary care and behavioral training for pets in need. The first 1000 walkers to register will get a free t-shirt. Individual walkers who raise the most money will have opportunities to win additional prizes.
