Event fundraising

The Walk Wiggle Wag event takes place today

CAP CORAL, Fl. – Today the Cape Coral Animal Shelter will host our first Wiggle Wag Walk, a fun ride to benefit animals – and you can bring your dog!

Walk, Wiggle & Wag is a family and pet-friendly event to raise vital funds to help the homeless, unwanted and neglected animals that end up in our care. Walk, Wiggle & Wag will feature a “strut” around the animal shelter campus and feature music, vendors, food trucks and activities for the whole family.

The Cape Coral Police Department’s K-9 unit will be demonstrating. Dogs are welcome and must be kept on a standard leash. (Retractable leashes are not allowed.)

Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and the walk will begin at 11:00 a.m. The event will continue until 4:00 p.m. Tours of the refuge are also available.

“Fundraising during the pandemic has been a huge challenge as many of our events have been postponed or canceled,” said Liz McCauley, CEO of CCAS. “It has been difficult to find creative ways to organize events while staying safe. Because we can social distance and this event is taking place outdoors, we hope to be able to raise much needed funds. to continue our work while keeping everyone safe. And how full will it be to bring your dog for fun and exercise?!”
