Woof, Wag + Walk

Woof, Wag + Walk

Saturday, September 14 - 10am

It’s that time of year for our annual Woof, Wag + Walk - West Laurel Hill’s signature pet event! Join us for a morning of entertainment for pets and parents alike!

We’ve partnered with the Women’s Animal Center for this special tour, who are also celebrating their 150th Anniversary this year! This event will include a pet-friendly walking tour of the grounds that features some of our favorite pet stories and a tour of our beautiful pet center, The Laurels!

The fee for this tour is $10 per dog. All proceeds will go directly to the Women’s Animal Center to support their mission of protecting the interests of animals, and offering a continuum of care to ensure that all animals are treated humanely with kindness and respect.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Conservatory.

*Rain date scheduled for Sunday, September 15th.
