We are walking because we LOVE animals and we believe that there is a loving home out there for all of them!

Sammie’s Wag-N-Walk-A-Thon is a celebration of people coming together to raise money for all of the animals at the Nevada County Animal Shelter.  Over 2,000 animals come through our shelter doors every year.  The funds raised from this event will help provide medical care, low cost spay/neuter services, adoptions, and other lifesaving treatments for our shelter animals and other furry friends in our community. We hope you will join us on this very special day!
