5K Paw Walk in the Garden

Registration for 2018 5k Paw Walk is now CLOSED.

to everyone who joined us for the
6th Annual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden.


We had approximately 500 walkers.
(150 more attendees than last year!)

That’s not surprising considering that it’s the only day of the year when families can take their dogs for a walk at the
San Diego Botanic Garden!

Because of you, the 5k Paw Walk in the Garden
raised almost $25,000!

 If you had a chance to visit Vintage Camera Box

A special thanks to all of our Sponsors,
who helped make this possible:

Until five years ago there had NEVER been a dog allowed in the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) in Encinitas. Then came the first-ever 5K Paw Walk in the Garden benefiting your Rancho Coastal Humane Society and SDBG. More than 350 people with dogs put their best paws forward to support these two landmark organizations. This event continues to grow every year, so we hope you will join us in 2019!
