Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 1st to Walk for the Animals with APS! 

Registration is open now!

It’s here! We are so excited to kick off fundraising for our 2024 Walk for the Animals! On June 1st, at Duke University’s East Campus, APS of Durham is going to stretch our legs with the biggest animal lovers in Durham. We can’t wait to celebrate with you and enjoy a day full of engaging, entertaining, and educational events. And the best part? We all get to work toward that big day together!

The Walk is our yearly reminder that APS can only do our life-saving work thanks to our incredible community lifting us up with their energy, compassion, and commitment. Click on Become a Fundraiser to sign up, and start collecting donations on behalf of the animals at APS and throughout Durham. This year, we’re encouraging folks to team up and fundraise to help us reach our 2024 goal of $120,000. Then, we’ll come together on June 1st to celebrate!

Please join us as we gather all of our biggest supporters to raise funds for our furry friends. Let’s work toward the big Walk together, one paw in front of the other.

Team Up!

Walk for the Animals is our chance every year to gather as a community to support Durham’s most vulnerable pets. After signing up as a fundraiser, you can join or create a team with friends, coworkers, your softball team, anyone! Even as an individual fundraiser you can always invite the communities you’re a part of to find your page and donate. We’re in this together!


Animal lovers are everywhere! Raising funds on behalf of APS is about showing people a cause they already want to support. Get your message out there by word-of-mouth, posting on social media, and encouraging local businesses to support. Let your creativity shine! Bake sales, car washes, and trivia contests are just a few ideas that can help you reach donors and move us toward our goal. (And don’t forget to advertise our raffle, our awesome Walk shirts, and joining the Walk itself!)


On June 1st, we party together! Our big Walk around Duke East Campus, led by our Grand Marshal, is only one part of the festivities. We’ll hold pet contests, congratulate the biggest fundraisers, award raffle prizes, and more! Make sure to register to attend, grab your 2024 Walk T-shirt, and meet us there to celebrate all your hard work to get us there!

Are you ready?! Registration is open. Click this link to build your donation page and start fundraising!

Thank you to our 2024 sponsors!
