Virtual Pet Walk Door County

July 13 - September 12, 2020
Online Fundraising Challenge
We were so excited to see you in September at Pet Walk Door County, but in the interest of participants, staff, and volunteers, we’ve made the difficult decision to hold a virtual walk challenge instead. Rather than gathering in person, we’re inviting you to help save animals by going for a run or walk through your own neighborhood, park, or even on your treadmill! Although we’ll miss seeing smiling faces and wagging tails, we know we can still work together to support homeless animals in the Door County community and have some fun too!
