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 assists victims by providing safe, temporary placement of family pets through a network of volunteer foster families that offer a loving home while our clients move to safety. Once that is achieved, our clients and their pets are reunited! 

The Pooch Parade is an annual event that helps raise awareness and funds for this program.

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!
