Event information

Walk for Animals

Rain or shine, gates will open at 9 AM on Saturday, May 4, at the International Bazaar on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. We'll begin walking at 10 AM and wrap up our fun-filled day by 1 PM.

All animal lovers are welcome at the Walk! Didn't fundraise? No problem. There are plenty of opportunities to make a difference at the Walk with cash, credit card, and virtual payment donations.

Walk route and location

This year, we're back at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to celebrate second chances.

Walkers will start on Spruce Street, turn left onto Randell Avenue, and then make their way down Underwood Street. The walk route is approximately one mile, and you can turn around at any time.

How to bring your pet to the Walk

For the safety of your dog and others, we highly recommend a 4’ or 6’ flat leash. Retractable leashes are not advised.

We also recommend that small animals like cats, rabbits, and ferrets enjoy the Walk for Animals from the comfort and safety of a carrier or covered stroller.

What to bring

Food, entertainment, and more

After you walk, it's time to celebrate! The Walk features an array of food and beverage vendors to delight your taste buds, as well as an incredible lineup of local retailers, rescues, and pet service providers. See who'll be joining us.

We'll also have a number of fun activities for pets and people alike! Stop by the International Bazaar to dive into the fun.
