Why is there a $25 registration fee?

The registration fee covers the costs of your 2023 Parade of Paws commemorative T-Shirt and drawstring sports pack. It’s also a donation to the Spokane Humane Society that will help us raise the funds needed to help animals in Spokane. If you won’t be participating as a fundraiser, and don’t want a t-shirt or sports pack, you can show up and participate in the walk on the day of for free.

I’m bringing my kids, do they need to be registered?

Only if they will need a t-shirt and sports pack. Otherwise, they can join for free and do not need to pre-register.

We’re walking as a couple, do we create a team or each register as solo walkers?

One of you should register as a team captain. Then, register the second person as a team member on your mighty team of two!

Can I walk a shelter dog in the parade?

For safety and liability reasons, only trained volunteers and staff will be able to walk shelter dogs in the parade. 

Should I bring my dog or cat to walk in the parade?

If your dog(s) or cat(s) do well in public around large groups of other animals and people, we welcome you to bring them along for a great time.
