2017 PetsWALK 5K Presented by Boomer's Pet Boutique!

With beautiful water views and a gentle, mostly-flat course, this charity 5K is great fun for both you and your four-legged friend. You can run, you can jog, or you can walk. Take PetsWALK at the pace of your choice.
If a 5K isn't quite your style, we also have a 1 Mile option!


Sign up for PetsWALK today!

Each $25 registration comes with a Kitsap Humane Society bandana for you or your four-legged companion (your bandana is your ticket for entry), access to the vendor fair following the 5K, the ability to participate in the contests (talent, kid's dash, and costume) and a swag bag.

Check out the Fundraising-Incentives tab to see the selection of prizes you'll earn as you fundraise!

  • Stay & enjoy the vendor fair! Following the 5K, explore the vendor booth spaces, asking questions and learning more about pet-themed organizations within Kitsap County. You’ll have an opportunity to vote for your favorite vendor, so be sure to stop by each vendor booth space! If you’re looking to grow your animal family, we will have several animals there available for adoption. And if you need to license your pet (or renew your licenses) PetsWALK is the day! Each license earns you a raffle ticket!
  • Participate in one of our contests! We’ll have kid’s dashes (for kids under 12), a costume contest, a talent contest, and an agility course to try out with your dog! We will also have a performance by the Emerald City K-9 Freestyle Dancers!
