saving lives one step at a time! 

Spokane Humane Society’s 19th Annual Parade of Paws is back and we have some very exciting news. It’s our 125th anniversary!

This year, our fun-packed 2-3 mile walk will take place at the Forestry Shelter in River Front Park. We’ll be celebrating our 125th anniversary and unveiling our new SHS Dog Park, while still saving lives on step at a time.

Parade of Paws benefits the animals at the Spokane Humane Society awaiting their forever homes. You, your dog, family, co-workers, and friends are all welcome to join in the fun to raise funds for animals in need.  Please only bring your pet if they are friendly around other pets & their hoomans!
