Step Up For The Pups On June 14, 2020!

This first-ever independent walkathon was created as a way to help Speaking of Dogs Rescue while complying with Covid-19 physical distancing.

All money raised for the Step Up for The Pups walkathon will go directly toward the costs of our foster programs and caring for the dogs who come into our rescue. Costs such as medical care, grooming, microchips and other dog-related supplies. Your participation/support is greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue our life-saving dog rescue efforts.

Participate by walking or pledge your support for one of our participants!

Participants can compete and win prizes for:

  • Most money raised
  • Most steps
  • Best social media engagement

Register to Walk (with or without a dog) by clicking on Create a Fundraiser (above).

Sponsor/Pledge a Participant by clicking on Find a Fundraiser or Fundraisers tab (next to Campaign above).

We’re hoping as many people as possible will participate in our Step Up for The Pups walkathon fundraiser in June.  By participating you’ll be helping dogs like Maxine, a10-year-old shih tzu mix and Isaac, a 12-year-old Pomeranian who both needed cardiac ultrasounds; Jacob, Roxie, Jody, Phil, Lucy and Pekoe who all needed dental surgeries with extractions; Jamilla a lovely 8-year-old hound mix who is heartworm positive; Molly a 12 year old shih tzu mix who needed eye surgery; Hailey and Little Bit who are diabetic; Hero with her orthopedic needs, and Frankie, a senior shepherd mix and Darcy a mini poodle found abandoned in the woods, both with skin issues.  Sadly, despite our current unprecedented situation, dogs still become homeless, vulnerable and put in precarious positions and need us to be there for them; nothing has changed in that regard.

Speaking of Dogs Rescue is run solely by volunteers. Our dogs are lovingly cared for in foster homes until we find just the right home for each and every one of them. We are an all-breed dog rescue with a focus on senior dogs.
