About the 30th Annual Pet Walk

Welcome to our 2021 Hybrid Pet Walk!!! 

This year's event is our 30th annual Pet Walk. Register online, form a team with your co-workers or encourage friends and family to join you! Raise funds together then join us Saturday, April 17th to celebrate! 

This year's walk is FREE to register but fundraising is always encouraged (the animals need you) and you'll need to raise at least $25 to get an OFFICIAL Pet Walk T-shirt!  

It's only a few weeks until Pet Walk but it's not too late to raise money for homeless animals! Check out this video and discover how we can send you a TEXT that your can forward to your peeps to raise money!

Right now, up to 1,000 walkers (subject to change) can celebrate their fundraising efforts at a safe, outdoor event that follows all city COVID-19 guidelines. 

Located in North Straub Park, walkers and their pets will enjoy vendor booths, a costume contest and a self-directed, socially-distanced 1.8 mile walk along the waterfront. Walkers who prefer to stay home will also be able to celebrate on the 17th, as the entire event will be simulcast that morning on the SPCA’s social channels, @SPCATampaBay.

    Pet Walk Support

    Why Participate?

    Join the hundreds of animal lovers who participate and raise money to help homeless and suffering animals in our community! 

    SPCA Tampa Bay is a For-All shelter and we support a healthy community and animal welfare. Being a “for-all” shelter means that SPCA Tampa Bay will not limit admission or refuse to take in a pet.

    We are for ALL shapes, colors, species, breeds, ages and situations. ALL are welcome here!

    How Your Support Makes a Difference

    As a For-All Shelter, SPCA Tampa Bay will never turn an animal away. At any moment, we could meet a dog who needs extensive (and expensive!) surgery … or a litter of malnourished kittens fighting to survive … even a heartbroken family who just can’t keep their beloved pet. We’re ready to offer shelter and care — but we can’t do it without you!

    Funds raised by Pet Walk help us care for homeless animals and provide services for the humans that love them! Join us!

    Thanks to our generous sponsors
