After a 10-year pause, moving into a beautiful new shelter building, and constructing a unified trail suitable for all levels of walkers, Harford County’s largest dog walk is back, this year on October 19, 2024. HSHC’s supporters and their canine companions will descend on the shelter to enjoy a 1-mile walk around the picturesque grounds and a festive atmosphere honoring the special bond between pets and their people.

  • Hundreds of pet lovers all in one place
  • Contests for pets and people, including a costume contest
  • A Vendor Village featuring pet vendors, rescue partners, artists and more
  • Food trucks and beer garden
  • Activities for kids
  • Demonstrations, special guests & much more!
