Come join us for a fun day with other dog lovers!

Come join us and many other dog lovers for a day filled with family and canine fun while helping us raise money for homeless dogs! Join us for a pleasant walk in the beautiful woods at the Middlesex County 4H Fairgrounds. A walk leader and water for all walkers and dogs will be provided. All well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The day will be filled with enjoyable activities including an agility demonstration, canine good citizen testing, doggie games, raffles, vendors and more. Joining us, we’ll have many dog rescue groups and vendors with wonderful dog related items for sale.

2010 family fun

We invite children to come with their parents, however only adults 18 and over can hold dog’s leash.

Over the past years our annual walk has been a great success. This year the walk will again be one of our major fundraising events. Our goal is to raise funds for the countless numbers of German Shepherd Dogs in need throughout New England. All money raised will go for the care of the dogs in GSRNE’s foster care program. Because we are a fully volunteer, 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we rely on the generosity of GSD-lovers to fund our programs. This is one of two major fundraisers we have each year.


You can help by collecting as many pledges as possible! Your sponsor sheet and checks are due the day of the walk; please bring to the registration table between 10:30am-11:30am. If you cannot attend or want to pre-register, send your pledge forms and check(s) or money order(s) in the mail no later than Sept. 17th to:

Dog Walk GSRNE, Inc.
P.O. Box 299
Wayland, MA 01778

Our first giving page for online donations will be opening soon, so check back often!
