Thank you for participating in this year’s Virtual Walk for Animals

You helped us make history by participating in the first-ever Virtual Walk for Animals.

Animal lovers like you rose to the challenge and helped us show the world it’s possible to be together even when we’re apart. Your devotion, passion, and support are proof that nothing can take away our ability to make a difference in our community.

On behalf of everyone at Animal Humane Society ― and the thousands of dogs, cats, and critters you’ve impacted through your support ― thank you for your time, generosity, and unwavering love of animals.

It’s not too late to donate

If you haven’t already, you can still support the Virtual Walk for Animals with a gift today. Every dollar raised goes directly toward helping animals in need.


Walkers who are eligible to receive fundraising prizes will receive an email requesting completion of a prize redemption form. Please watch for these emails starting May 12.


If you have questions about your fundraising efforts, mailing in donations, or prize fulfillment, please review our FAQ page. If you need further assistance, contact us at 763-432-4841 or walk@animalhumanesociety.org.
