About 2020 Virtual Walk for the Animals

​Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Annual Walk for the Animals has gone VIRTUAL! AFA has been forced to cancel many fundraisers this year because of the pandemic. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we rely on generous donations to care for 150 animals in our care. It takes $2,000 every day of the year to keep the shelter and medical clinic open.

Please consider joining this fun event to help Westmoreland County’s oldest no-kill shelter raise much needed funds.​ You can participate from any location, in any of the following ways:

Sign up as an individual walker or register or join a team with your company, family or friends at https://p2p.onecause.com/afawalk/. Registration fee: $15 per person, which includes a Walk t-shirt. Must register by October 7th to have a t-shirt for day of event. If you register after October 7th, you will receive your t-shirt after the event.

You’ll receive your own fundraising page after you register. Share the link of your page with your friends and family, asking for donations to help the homeless animals.

On the day of the Walk, Saturday, October 31, 2020, take a walk around your yard, through your neighborhood or at a favorite park or trail between 8am-8pm. Go alone, take your pets, stroll with friends or family members or while you’re trick or treating! Walk as little or as much as you want.

Take a photo during your Virtual Walk and share on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram with hashtag #AFAWalk so everyone can see your support for AFA and all the fun you’re having! BONUS PRIZE: We will select one photo from social media using the hashtag #AFAWalk and the winner will receive a prize!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Action For Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization that receives no government funding. We care for 150+ animals every day, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! We need to raise at least $2,000 per day to keep the shelter running efficiently. AFA relies solely on the support of our  community. With the financial strain the Covid-19 pandemic has caused us, we need your support now more than ever. Your generosity will help us save the lives of more homeless dogs, cats, kittens, puppies and bunnies!
