Every fall for the past 16 years, NHS has hosted our annual Pasta 4 Paws fundraiser where we serve a pasta dinner coupled with a silent auction event sponsored by numerous local business. This event has not only become a staple in our community, but it is also a major source of funds that fuel our shelter! Given our continual success with Pasta 4 Paws, including our first ever virtual event in 2020, we’ve decided to introduce our first annual sponsored dog walking fundraiser this spring called the NHS Hound Hike! Our goal is to introduce a new NHS tradition to raise funds for our incredible animals as well as bring our community together to celebrate our furry family members!
Though our first Hound Hike will be virtual for the first year, the participation possibilities are endless! From here, you can simply enlist your friends, colleagues, and family members to sponsor your pet and then get to hiking around your neighborhood!
Don’t have a hound to hike with? Our event is all-inclusive so cats walking on leashes, rabbits hopping around your yard, or even your hamsters running on their exercise wheels can participate to help raise much needed funds!
If you love animals but don’t currently have one yourself, don’t worry you can still help us save hundreds of lives by simply sponsoring one of our current dogs residing at the shelter during the Hound Hike week. Here at NHS, we have an amazing group of volunteers who come daily to walk our dogs, simply register and choose one of our dogs (photos can be seen on our website), and our dedicated group of volunteers will walk these dogs on your behalf, who knows your generosity could also result in finding a forever home for the shelter dog chosen as he or she may be spotted while on his/her walk to the park.
The Hound Hike will be scheduled between Tuesday, April 13 thru end of day Tuesday, April 20 to make sure that all those who want to get the opportunity to participate can do so.
The first 100 participants to register will receive a special edition superhero Funko board game, kindly donated by Funko! Individual contributions of over $100 will receive an NHS baseball hat or travel mug or receive both for individual contributions over $200! There will also be prizes for the most money raised, the most creative video and more! So, make sure to take some fun videos and photos of you and your pet(s) on a walk, get creative with your campaign and share your videos and details on social media, and encourage others to donate to your fundraiser for the animals of NHS!
Fundraising through our Hound Hike is easy to do and can quickly become very rewarding! Say you and your pet get 10 of your friends to sponsor your pet for $10, that’s already $100 raised!
We at Nassau Humane are thrilled to introduce our first ever Hound Hike and look forward to seeing our community and their pets strutting their stuff!
