Barktoberfest Walk For Dogs
In this unprecedented year, we are looking ahead to our 23rd Annual Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest. With the uncertainty surrounding live events, the critical life saving funds raised at this event are now at risk. Our priority remains the health and safety of our supporters and staff, as well as continuing to provide critical care for the homeless and abused pets in our community. This year, the dollars you raise for the Walk for the Animals (regardless of whether we’re actually able to walk together) are more essential than ever before.
Since the beginning of the year, over 2,000 pets have been brought to Lollypop Farm in need of a second chance. Whether you register as a Hero at Home or schedule a Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest, you are critical to ensuring pets receive the life-saving care they need. We have always loved having all you here at Lollypop Farm to celebrate with a huge festival, we know that for this year the Walk for the Animals will need to look a little different. But that doesn't mean we can't still have fun making second chances possible for the pets in our community who need us most!
Every week we'll be celebrating your life-saving fundraising efforts leading up to the Walk for the Animals on Sept. 26, with challenges and exciting prizes! Starting Aug. 17, we'll be hosting 6 weekly online challenges for you and your fundraising teams to participate in with fun prizes! You could win everything from gift cards to spoil your own furry friends with to kitten parties brought to you by Lollypop Farm!
SCHEDULE YOUR WALK
Be a hero and make an appointment to walk at the Lollypop Farm campus between Sept. 21 and Oct. 5. We’ll be offering limited admission chances to experience the beauty of our Farm Walk. Bring your own pet and witness the direct impact of your support in person. We’ll have safety precautions in place, and ask that you wear a mask. When you make an appointment to walk on Sept. 26 at Lollypop Farm, we’ll have exciting pop-up entertainment and sponsors present to cheer you on!
BE A HERO AT HOME
Register for a Barktober Fest Block Party! We’ll send you everything you need to host your very own mini Barktober Fest. Let’s just call it a party in a box. You can choose this option to show your support right from your own front yard. Remember, it’s not where you walk - it’s who you walk with, and your pet is the best walking partner around.
MAKE YOUR MARK
Your support has never meant more. When you complete your walk -either on campus or from afar - we’ll place a temporary marker on our front lawn showcasing your lasting impact for the homeless and abused animals of Lollypop Farm. Together we can make a difference, and we hope you will help us fill our front lawn with a showcase of love for the animals of Lollypop Farm.
