Pet Walk is back for the 30th year and it’s bigger and better than ever! Reimagined as Pet Walk Festival and moved to the grounds of our new building, the fun is set for Saturday, June 8 from 2:00 - 8:00pm at the new Pet Rescue & Resource Center operated by Hinsdale Humane Society.

The day includes a short “Pet Walk” course around the neighborhood, DJ, food options for purchase, a kids corner & kids raffle, pet demonstrations, vendor shopping mall, Therapaws Team meet & greets, Nose Works Demo and a small mammal area. Visit our cat lodge and photo area, and we'll hold a silent auction concluding at 7:30pm. Proceeds benefit our homeless animals.
Evening Activities run from 5:00pm - 8:00pm. The evening includes The Millennials live in concert starting at 5:30pm, as well as food options for purchase, lawn games, and a silent auction concluding at 7:30pm. Guests are asked to bring their own beverage and a blanket or chair for the concert. All ticket sales benefit our homeless animals.
