About Wellspring’s Annual Pooch Parade

Did you know victims of domestic violence and sexual assault may not leave an abusive relationship out of fear of what might happen to their pet? 

Wellspring’s Safe Pet Partnership Program can help! Our Safe Pet Program assists victims by providing safe, temporary placement of family pets through a network of volunteer foster families. These volunteer families provide pets with a loving home while our clients move to safety. Once that is achieved, our clients and their pets are reunited! 

Pooch Parade is an annual event that helps raise awareness and funds for our Safe Pet Partnership program (read more about this program here.) 

Event Details

Enjoy a fun day for you and your pooch filled with pet vendors, giveaways, a raffle, and much more followed by a community walk around Congress Park! We are so excited to host Pooch Parade in person this year. Stay tuned for additional information and updates.

Date: Saturday, September 18, 2021

Time: 10:00 am registration & activities | 11:00 am parade begins (rain or shine!)
