Due to COVID-19, social distancing and El Paso’s continuing efforts to stay safe, the Humane Society of El Paso will be hosting its
31st Annual K-9 Classic
"A Walk for Animals"
as a virtual event. You can complete your walk on your own any time between May 23rd - 30th. A canine companion is not required but highly encouraged. Submitting your distance and time is optional.
With many of us working from home, COVID-19 has been a field day for dogs. This spring’s K-9 Classic gives you and your pet an opportunity to put all your daily quarantine training toward a good cause. All proceeds from the K-9 Classic support HSEP’s programs, including: the shelter, housing 200 animals; our foster program for puppies, kittens, and special needs animals; the kitten nursery; our end-of-life services; vacation camps for children and youth. For a $20 registration fee, you can support HSEP’s programs, enjoy a run with your dog, and have a chance to win great prizes.
This year we will also be honoring
the service and sacrifice of America's Military Dogs.
It is our pleasure to announce that $5 from each registration of the K-9 Classic Memorial Day Virtual Run will be donated to
Working Dogs for Vets
– a program providing service dogs and training to disabled heroes in need, empowering them as they return to civilian life with a new found independence; reducing suicide and overcrowding in animal shelters.
Even though we can’t be together for this walk, we hope you’ll help us continue the spirited tradition of the K-9 Classic. Pick your favorite route, grab a leash, and share your walk/run using
