On June 5th, walkers with and without four-legged companions participated in the 2021 Sacramento SPCA (SSPCA) virtual Doggy Dash. Celebrating its 28th anniversary, the SSPCA’s Doggy Dash has grown into Northern California’s largest 2K/5K dog walk and pet festival. This year, the SSPCA had hoped to raise $150,000, but with support from individuals, businesses, and foundations, the event surpassed its 2021 goal, raising $165,000.
Event attendees shared photos and enjoyed the event’s live broadcast and pet festival. Those who connected online also took a virtual tour of the new Zoe K. McCrea Animal Health Center before the event officially kicked off.
The SSPCA is the only full-service 100% non-profit animal shelter in the Sacramento region and relies on donations from the community to support its mission. In 2020, the organization was responsible for 2,603 animal adoptions, 13,012 animals spayed or neutered, and 1,181 animals ushered through foster care.
