The 1st Annual Dash & Splash was a hit!


On Sunday, September 8th 2019, the Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo’s iconic Wiggle Waggle Walkathon joined paws with Surf Dogs! This year marked our 23rd Annual Walkathon and 15th Surf Dogs celebration.

It was a splashing success at Kiwanis Park with over 100 walkers participating in the “Dash”, and over 400 dogs participating in the afternoon “Splash”. 90 dogs were confident enough to take on the Run Spot Run Lure Course sponsored by Timbercreek Communities.

Our Walk Mascots, Hank and Bo, led the pack around the Kiwanis Park pool before the dogs got to enjoy the last pool party of the summer!

Happy owners and pups got to take home wonderful prizes from our donors and event sponsors – Ren’s Pets and Skedaddle Humane Wildlife.

We are grateful for the generous support our community has shown in helping us raise $20,000.00 for the animals in our care.

Thank you to all those that put their best paw (and foot!) forward to help less fortunate pets in our community.
