The Dog Walk & Woofstock is an annual North Carolina fundraiser that brings animal lovers together for a fun walk and festivities with a very important purpose: Saving thousands of lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted pets, and giving them a second chance at happiness in a forever home.

NEW for 2020! 

1. We're walking after sunset to symbolize that your fundraising efforts help light the path home for pets in need. 
2. We have done away with registration fees, and are encouraging everyone that registers to commit to saving 1 pet life (raising a minimum of $100). 
3. Once you raise $100, you get your official 2020 Dog Walk & Woofstock T-shirt to wear with pride at the event! 

Why $100?
Because it takes a minimum of $100 to cover the cost to help an abused and abandoned homeless pet.

How do I get started?

Register to fundraise and walk... it's that simple (and it's FREE).  You can join as an individual or better yet, create a team and invite everyone you know to fundraise and walk with you!

What does it cost?

It costs nothing to register. we are encouraging everyone that registers to commit to saving 1 pet life (raising a minimum of $100).


Having your child join you in fundraising for this event is a great way to help them...

  • develop critical thinkings skills (why do you want to help the animals?)

  • communication skills (what are you going to say to Grandma/Grandpa when you ask them to support you?); and

  • self-empowerment (because of you, "x" animals will now be able to find new families!).

If your child is elementary school-aged or older, we highly encourage you to register and add them to your family's team so they can join you in making a difference in your community.

Note: If your child is younger than 6 years old, they are still welcome to come to the event, but we recommend waiting to register them/get them involved in fundraising until they are a bit older and can understand the impact they are creating for animals in need!

The dog walk t-shirt

The Dog Walk t-shirt is a classic event tradition. You'll love being part of the crowd of walkers sporting this year's amazing shirt the night of the Dog Walk.

How do I get my Dog Walk T-Shirt?

Save 1 Life! This year we're asking everyone that registers for the event to raise enough money to save one pet life. It takes a minimum of $100 to help a homeless, neglected, or abused animal get the treatment they need before they find their new home. So we're rewarding everyone that saves a pet, with the exclusive 2020 Dog Walk t-shirt.    

Can I get other things if I raise more than $100?

Ummmm YES! Of course, you will!  We have so many wonderful rewards we can't wait to give you including... fun prizes and swag, opportunities to show off, food and beverages, VIP parking and access to an exclusive VIP Deck with even more goodies. You can find all the details on the Fundraiser Rewards page.
