2017 Sup Pups Pack – Winners of the Wacky Woof Award!

One of the best ways to walk is to Form A Pack! Walk for the Animals is always a lot of fun, but to be honest, the most important thing about the Walk is the money that it raises to save the lives of thousands of homeless, abused and neglected animals each year. The animals of Humane Pennsylvania need YOU, and the most fun and effective way you can help is by forming a Walk Pack. 

What is a Pack? A Pack is a dedicated group of two or more people who form a team and combine their fundraising efforts to collect a minimum of $1,000 in donations for the Walk. Packs then celebrate their success by walking together at the event and receiving some extra cool perks, like custom t-shirts, Pack photos and reserved party tables in the Walk’s Packville!

By forming a Pack, you can bring a group of like-minded animal lovers together with a mission – a mission to combine fundraising forces in order to touch as many lives as possible. Packs help us provide routine veterinary care to homeless animals, and then help those animals find loving new homes each year! You’ll enjoy the afternoon having a great time with your friends and loved ones, taking part in lots of fun activities for the whole family, but most importantly: you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your Pack helped save thousands of lives!

Never created a Pack before? Your first step is to fill out the 2017 Walk PACKet. Email Chief Advancement Officer Brian Pinto for more information: bpinto@humanepa.org. Then, setup your FirstGiving Fundraising page! This is where you can track your progress and success! We know that if you help us, this will be the biggest, most successful Walk ever!
