Event Info

Join us for the best walk you will take all year at the Walk for Animals — North County on Saturday, Feb. 25, at Kit Carson Park in Escondido! Together, we can create a more humane San Diego.

Your participation will make a lifesaving difference for pets and wildlife in need. The funds raised for the Walk will provide animals with shelter and lifesaving medical care, adopt pets into loving homes, rescue animals from cruelty and neglect, and so much more. In the coming year, more than 40,000 animals will rely on us for care. By joining the Walk for Animals, you'll help give each one the second chance they deserve!
