Every year, hundreds of people participate in Harbor Hounds with dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds. Or, we could just have easily said, hundreds of dogs participate with people of all shapes, sizes and breeds.
The 11th Annual Harbor Hounds Charity Dog Walk presented by New Tacoma Cemeteries and Funeral Home benefits the Prison Pet Partnership, and the many charities supported by the Gig Harbor Midday Rotary Club. Enjoy a day of fun with neighbors, family and your furry best friend!
You can participate as an event sponsor, which can also include a space for you to set up your tent and promote your organization in designated booth areas along the walk, or simply as a dog walker (with or without a dog).
Come join us for a leisurely walk along the beautiful Gig Harbor waterfront. As you walk, have your entry card stamped by event staff. At the end of the walk, turn in your card for a chance to win in a drawing for great prizes! The walk takes place rain or shine. Day-of-event registration is also available! And, we have plenty of water stations along the way.
We also conduct a number of fun contests for you to show off your dog. Categories include: Best Tricks, Best Kisser (the dog), Best Tail Wagger, Best Dressed, and our fun musical Sit and Stay contest.
So, come on, join the fun. And, meet other dog lovers who share your passion.
You can also follow us on Facebook while you wait for the walk to get here. We welcome your friendship and pictures of your Harbor Hounds throughout the year.
