This online option makes it easy for you since you don’t have to collect the pledges to bring on walk day. If you do collect offline donations you can add them to your webpage in the offline donations tab on your page.

If you cannot attend but still want to contribute, you can go to our website and click “How to Help” then choose “Online Donations”. Click on the “Donate” button, then choose your donation amount and click “Donate”. Please write “Pet Walk” in the special instructions area so your donation is applied towards our $40,000 goal.
