Why is Dog Jog Vital to Raising Funds for the Animals in our Care?

Join us on Saturday June 1st in South Glenmore Park as we walk and run to end animal cruelty

Dog Jog is the largest walk or jog in support of ending animal cruelty in Southern Alberta. Over 400 participants and 700 dogs take to the paths in South Glenmore Park to show their support. Every single year we have raised funds to help animals who have faced cruelty, neglect, and abuse live fuller and better lives.

This will be our 18th annual Dog Jog, which is always held on the first Saturday of June. Our family-friendly event raises vital funds to provide support, raise awareness, and fund much-needed resources for prevention, education, rehabilitation and, ultimately, a new beginning for animals in need.


Why walk or jog?

  • Choose to walk or jog because you love your pets and they are important to you.
  • Walk because your pets are rescued or you know a pet that has been rescued.
  • Walk because you want to raise awareness about animal welfare and wish to help us end animal cruelty.

In 2018, 3,991 animals were admitted into our protection and care. That is 3,991 reasons to choose to walk or run with us. We encourage you to stand together with your four-legged friends to raise funds and awareness for these animals. All proceeds support the animals in our care.

Since 2008, Dog Jog has raised nearly $1.6 million and has had 5,637 participants.


We are in the community

Our Education and Outreach team is dedicated to creating a community that fosters compassion, empathy, and respect for all living things. We believe education is the key to prevention. We provide classroom presentations, field trips, birthday parties, camps and youth clubs. Our Outreach team is spreading awareness that we are more than a shelter by being present in all corners of the city. You can find us at festivals and events in various communities throughout the year.

Our mission is to help as many animals as we can. We cannot do this without your support.
