Fort Steilacoom Park
The 29th annual Dog-A-Thon is one of Tacoma and Pierce County’s largest dog-friendly events of the year, and all proceeds benefit The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County. This event combines the fun and excitement of a festival atmosphere with the spirited fundraising power of a walk. Through this community celebration of pets and the people who love them, we promote positive, healthy activities with your dog and increase awareness of our initiatives in our community and beyond. Funds raised through Dog-A-Thon supports our critical, lifesaving programs that allow us to place over 10,000 pets each year.
