Get your paws ready! The VCA Walk for the Animals is happening on Saturday, March 4, 2023. This highly anticipated event is celebrating 33 years of animal lovers coming together to support the Humane Society of Broward County.

After many amazing years at Huizenga Park, the event is moving to a NEW location near Fort Lauderdale Beach. The VCA Walk for the Animals will be held at the beautiful Las Olas Intracoastal Promenade Park. With a magnificent view of the ocean and refreshing sea breeze, we are looking forward to this new location.

The one-mile walk is accompanied by vendor booths, entertainment, prizes and more. Walk participants who gather donations will receive gifts for different fund-raising levels reached starting at $150 which will earn you the official Walk t-shirt. For those who raise $1,000 or more your dog will be entered into a contest for a chance to be the 2024 Walk Cover Dog. The 2023 Cover Dog is Sparty who resides in Weston with his human parents Amy and Tenney McGraw.

Event Chairs Carey Morgan of Fort Lauderdale and Leslie Puro of Lighthouse Point are thrilled to be chairing the event, along with Jacey Birch of WPLG Local 10 News, iHeart Radio’s Doc Reno from BIG 105.9 and Frankie P. from Y-100 who are emceeing.

Registration is open at  You can choose to register either as an individual walker or have fun raising money as a team by creating a Pack. Once registered, you can customize your own fundraising page and ask family, friends, and co-workers to join you or donate and post on social media, all with the click of a button.

There is no registration fee, but the VCA Walk for the Animals is the Humane Society of Broward County’s largest fundraiser of the year. Donations and sponsorships received allow the shelter to continue caring for the thousands of homeless animals that come to the facility yearly.  In addition, the shelter offers many programs and services such as low-cost vaccinations, educational programs and surrender prevention – all funded in part by animal lovers who participate in the Walk.

For those who would like to help the animals but can’t make it to the celebration on March 4, consider starting or joining a Virtual Pack. Our dedicated Virtual Walkers help the animals by raising money even though they won’t be physically walking the walk.

The money raised with the Walk enables us to continue building a more humane community. Be a part of this fabulously fun event and help the animals at the same time!  Learn more at, or contact Rachel Frank at or 954.266.6817.
