Whisker Walk and Family Fun Day

Harbor Park
Rockland, ME
Sep 29, 2018
9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Sat., Sept. 29 at 9AM-2PM, Harbor Park, Rockland: Join animal lovers from all over Midcoast Maine as they walk to support the Pope Memorial Humane Society. You do not need a dog to participate because this family event has something for everyone (two-legged and four-legged): an agility course to try out, food to eat, music to enjoy, a doggy day spa to pamper, awesome pet vendors to browse, and children’s activities to play.

The main event is the largest dog walk in town. Grab your dogs, family, friends, and co-workers to form a pack. Stretch your support even further by collecting pledges to help provide food, shelter, and medical supplies to the homeless animals in PMHS’s care who so desperately need it. Then stroll the beautiful mile long walk along the Rockland Harbor Boardwalk.

Event details and schedule

The event will take place in Harbor Park in Rockland, Maine. Registration begins at 9am, and the walk starts at 10am. Festivities will go on until 2pm. Be sure to bring water bottles, appropriate footwear, and a smile!
