Walk Star fundraising club

Walk Stars are especially passionate Walk participants who raise $1,000 or more for the Walk for Animals. These stars of fundraising make our mission possible day after day, year after year — and we couldn’t be more grateful.

To show our appreciation, Walk Stars receive exclusive perks during the Walk for Animals, including a special commemorative button, access to a reserved area of the Fairgrounds, and more!

Walk Stars are crucial to the success of the Walk for Animals. Check out our fundraising resources (including tips and tools) to help you reach your goals.

The power of $1,000

Your phenomenal fundraising efforts make a difference in the lives of animals.

A lifesaving ride
A gift of $1,000 helps transport dogs from overcrowded shelter partners to safety at AHS, where they’ll receive loving care while they wait for their second chance.

A brighter future
We’re combatting animal overpopulation with your help. A gift of $1,000 allows us to spay 20 cats — that means fewer unwanted litters of kittens who may become homeless or neglected.

A second chance
AHS is the only shelter in Minnesota that can provide specialty orthopedic and dental surgeries, X-rays, and ultrasounds — all on-site. A gift of $1,000 provides X-rays for eight injured animals in need of diagnosis.
