September 29th is the World’s Largest Pet Walk, an official Pet Partners walking event!

In celebration of our Walk With Me™ program, Pet Partners is excited to announce our World’s Largest Pet Walk

How will it work?

You and your pet(s) can walk at any time on Saturday, September 29th. Walk whatever distance feels right for you and your animal, and choose any location! Whether you lead a Walk With Me event in your community, gather some friends and family for a casual stroll around the block, or take a quiet hike that’s just you and your animal, we want to see our Pet Partners community taking steps with their pets. This isn’t only for registered Pet Partners teams–this event is for anyone who wants to enjoy the health benefits of being active with pets!

It’s so simple! Determine what type of walk you and your pet will participate in. You can choose an activity as simple as just you and your pet taking your normal stroll, or you can plan a group activity! If you’re part of a Community Partner or local therapy animal group, you could all get together and walk at a local pet-friendly park. Invite your neighbors to join you in a walk around the local nature trail, or organize a walk at the senior living community where you and your therapy animal volunteer. Any setting or circumstance where you might walk with your pet or use Walk With Me is a great option!

There’s no fee to participate, but we do ask that you share your photos with us and spread the word on social media. Make sure to print off your official walking bib to wear while you walk. Commemorative shirts are on sale through September 8th.
