5k • 1 mile Dog Walk • Dog Contests • Live Music by Untethered • & More

Fun for the whole family!

ALL money raised at HAWC’s Dog Jog goes directly to support (HAWC) programs such as SANTA (Spay And Neuter Transportation & Assistance) and the Harnett County Animal Shelter. The more money raised means we will be that much closer to the day when there are no more homeless pets.   Join the walk and make a world of difference for the animals and our community.

Get friends, family and coworkers involved by asking them to sponsor you in the 5k/Dog Walk and support what you believe in.  Tell them you are walking to put an end to homeless pets in our community. We bet they will be proud to sponsor you! Even small amounts like $10 from a handful of people will add up and you will quickly become a top-notch fundraiser for your community’s animals. After registering, follow the link to setup your team and/or fundraiser and invite your friends and family.  It’s easy!  Check out the Fundraiser Checklist for more information and tips!
