The 7th Annual FURlong - A Walk in the Park is Madison County's BIGGEST pet event!  Join hundreds of animal lovers and their four-legged friends as we raise much needed funds for The Animal Protection League, Anderson's ONLY open-admission shelter.  Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to make sure every animal that enters our doors is given a chance at a better life, but we simply can't do it without your help.  Your participation allows us to continue our mission - and give these precious abandoned, abused, and neglected animals the second chances they so desperately deserve.   

ALL proceeds benefit The Animal Protection League Inc., a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that depends on tax-deductible donations.  

REGISTER NOW to start raising much needed, lifesaving funds.

Choose from three registration options:       
Top Dog:  $25 Registration Fee - Walkers will receive a tail wagging treat bag and and event t-shirt will be mailed AFTER the event.   
Whisker Walker:  Free - Whisker Walkers can walk for free, but will not be eligible for an event t-shirt or treat bag.
Cat Napper:  $25 Registration Fee - Cat Nappers participate virtually and receive an event t-shirt in the mail.   
*PLEASE NOTE:  Top Dog Details have changed!  Top Dog Walkers who register after 9/29/19, will receive their event t-shirt in the mail, AFTER the event.  A $5 shipping charge has been added to the Top Dog Registration Fee.  

This PET-TACULAR event is more than a fundraising walk, it's fun for the entire family!  Join us for pet-friendly activities, vendor booths, adoptable pets, food trucks, and so much more! 

Why participate?

As the only open-admission shelter in Anderson, we face many challenges on a daily basis.  The FURlong - A Walk in the Park helps keep our doors open and the animals in our care alive.  While our role as "animal control" for the city helps offset some of the costs involved with operating a shelter, it represents less than 20% of the funds needed to make this place work. Animal care costs, medical needs, staffing, utilities - the list is never ending.  Your support is needed now more than ever.
