2020 Virtual Walk for the Animals

October 31, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
  • This event has passed.


​Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Annual Walk for the Animals has gone VIRTUAL!


AFA has been forced to cancel many fundraisers this year because of the pandemic. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we rely on generous donations to care for 150 animals in our care. It takes $2,000 every day of the year to keep the shelter and medical clinic open. Please consider joining this fun event to help Westmoreland County’s oldest no-kill shelter raise much needed funds.​

Visit the Virtual Walk website at: https://p2p.onecause.com/afawalk/ You can participate from any location, in any of the following ways:


  • Sign up as an individual walker or register or join a team with your company, family or friends online at https://p2p.onecause.com/afawalk/ or download the Walk registration form and register by mail. Registration fee: $15 per person, which includes a Walk t-shirt. Must register by October 7th to have a t-shirt for day of event.
  • You’ll receive your own fundraising page after you register. Share the link of your page with your friends and family, asking for donations to help the homeless animals.
  • On the day of the Walk, Saturday, October 31, 2020, take a walk around your yard, through your neighborhood or at a favorite park or trail between 8am-8pm. Go alone, take your pets, stroll with friends or family members or while you’re trick or treating! Walk as little or as much as you want.
