Woof It & Hoof It Charity Walk

Woofstock was created to not only celebrate the relationship between pets and their people, but also as an educational opportunity to teach the community about responsible pet ownership. The highlight of the event? Our Woof It & Hoof It dog walk.

100% of funds raised during Woof It & Hoof It (12:45 PM – 1:30 PM) go to our Survivor Program, which provides emergency medical care and treatment to HSHC animals.

    Eat, Drink, and Be Furry (or Merry!)

    We expect more than 4,000 attendees this year! With food, beer, kids’ activities, and musical entertainment, there’s something at Woofstock for every member of the family (furry friends included). We’ll have face painting, paw painting, and your pup can even take a cooling dip in the pool at our Canine Cool Zone.

    This is your chance to show your support for HSHC and celebrate the relationships between people and pets.

What is the Survivor Program?

The Woof It & Hoof It dog walk raises money specifically for our Survivor Program — a program that provides emergency medical care for animals arriving in need of lifesaving treatment.

From neglect to life threatening wounds and hit-by-car injuries, each case leaves us with the same difficult decision to make — do we use our limited funds to save an animal or not? It is only through your generous donations & fundraising that the answer to this question results in a happy ending!

Love & Let Live

Every animal deserves a second chance at love — and life. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.
