People often ask me, “What is the best way to help the animals that the Houston SPCA rescues?” or “How can I help the Houston SPCA if I don’t live in Houston?”  The best way to give to our animals is to participate in one of our largest events of the year – the Houston SPCA’s iWalk for Animals!

So what is iWalk for Animals?

iWalk for Animals is a lifesaving venture that encourages animal-lovers around the globe to “walk where they are” on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014. Gather with friends and family, with or without your pets, at the time and place of your choice and support the life-saving efforts of the Houston SPCA.

The best part about iWalk for Animals is just how little stress it will be for you, your family, friends, neighbors, and pets! Choose where you want to walk or run, pick your time and get to it!

Even he can do it!

How do I sign up?

You can register as an individual or join as a team by clicking here! When you register, you are raising funds for the Houston SPCA. We place 100 percent of our healthy animals into loving, new homes. We encourage you to enlist your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors to step up and support your fundraising efforts.

All iWalkers who raise $100 or more will receive a limited-edition iWalk for Animals T-shirt and be eligible for other great prizes!

What is a good goal for my iWalk for Animals team?

Each animal that comes into the Houston SPCA is given a medical evaluation, vaccinations, spay or neuter surgery, and a microchip. To do all this costs about $400 per animal! Not to mention the life-saving surgeries or treatments some animals need when rescued. Please consider $400 per person as your fundraising goal and remember, every little bit counts!

Last year, nearly 275 iWalkers from coast-to-coast stepped out and raised over $300,000. Join the movement and help the Houston SPCA give orphaned, abused and neglected animals a chance to find their forever families.

I have already joined iWalk for Animals this year – will you join me?
