Saturday September 12th 2015

Harbor Park in Rockland        9am-2pm

Join dog lovers from all over Mid Coast Maine as they walk and/or run to support the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County.  This family event has something for everyone (two legged and four legged): a 5K to run, an agility course to try out, food to eat, music to enjoy, a doggy day spa to pamper, awesome pet vendors to browse, and children’s activates to play.  The main event is the largest dog walk in town.  Grab your dogs, family, friends, and co-workers to form a pack.  Stretch your support even further by collecting pledges to help provide food, shelter, and medical supplies to the homeless animals in PMHSKC’s care who so desperately need it.  Then stroll the beautiful mile long walk along the Rockland Harbor Boardwalk.


Everyone is welcome; you do not need a dog to participate.  To register for the Mile-Long Dog Walk download the Walker Registration Form 2015, fill it out, and send that with your registration fee to:

PO Box 1297
Rockland, ME 04841

Registration Fees: $20 Adult (pre register), $25 Adult (day of event), $10 Child (15 and under)

To register for the 5K please visit active.comYou are welcome to participate in both the 5K and the Walk.  You do not need to register twice, simply complete the active.com form.

The Pledge Program is the heart of this event.  Download the Pledge Form and start collecting donations for homeless animals today.  Or create an online page at razoo.com to conveniently fundraise via email and social media.  Set a goal and ask friends, family, and co-workers to help you achieve it!  The individual who raises the most wins a great prize.


A pack is stronger (and way for fun) than an individual.  Get your friends and family to join you for a dog-gone good time.  Gather your co-workers and spend some time together out of the office for a great cause.

To form a Pack complete the Pack Registration form and send it in before the day of the walk (all pack members must also individually register).  Set a pledge goal and help motivate your pack members to fundraise.  On the day of the walk the Pack Leader gathers all pack members pledge forms or totals from razzo.com and submits a Pack Pledge Totals form at the registration table.  The Pack who raises the most gets a fabulous prize.
