You're invited to join us in a fundraising and educational initiative for the homeless pets of Tallahassee and beyond. At Walk & Wag, we offer everyone the opportunity to step forward and become… a Humane Hero!
Did you rescue your pet? Did your pet rescue you? Do you know someone in our community who has been a force for good in the lives of local pets in need? Create a fundraising team and share your personal “Rescue Tail” or nominate a local Humane Hero for their work!
Awesome prizes will be awarded in the following three categories:

At Walk & Wag, animal lovers are empowered to help and protect the pets they love.
