Thousands of animal lovers and their dogs descended on Brookside Park for the Pasadena Humane Society’s 19th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk on Sunday, September 24. Approximately 2,000 people and 1,000 canines enjoyed a one to three-mile walk around the Rose Bowl, as well as the event festivities that followed. The Wiggle Waggle Walk raised more than $200,000 for the animals.
Top honors for the eleventh year running went to the Punk Rock Rovers, a team that raised nearly $33,000, and top fundraiser Karen Kiefaber, who raised over $21,000. JoAnn Turovsky took the prize of Top Donor. All donati
ons from the Walk will go to providing food, shelter, medical care, and so much more for the more than 11,000 animals PHS cares for annually.
The Wiggle Waggle Walk featured a variety of festivities, including vendor booths, K-9 demonstrations from the Pasadena Police Department, an open agility course, pet contests, music and food trucks. KTLA Channel 5 anchor and animal advocate Lu Parker emceed the event.
“Thank you to all the participants in our 19th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk,” said Julie Bank, President/CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “We shared a great day with our best four-legged friends and supported our community’s animals,”
