Catch the Cider Wagon at the annual fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society, Doggie Dash!

Portland's Biggest Fundraiser for Pets and People Celebrates 30 Years! Visit

Register today for the 30th Annual Doggie Dash! Dashers are encouraged to celebrate thirty years of helping pets by coming to this year's event in their finest 1987 attire: bright colored sunglasses, bangles, leg warmers, big earrings and velour tennis outfits will be right in style! 

While Dashers are known for having fun, they are also known for raising record amounts of money for pets. This year's goal is $675,000. When you sign up, you'll get your own webpage that you can personalize and share to raise funds for shelter pets. It's as easy as saying "pets need your help."

The walk/run itself is open to everyone, with or without a dog. You'll enjoy car-free streets with great views of the city, and you'll see more dogs than you can imagine. Last year, more than 3,500 dogs enjoyed the event. We hope to see you there on May 13!
