Laurel Hill is proud to partner with and support other non-profit organizations whose missions, goals, or activities align with ours. Throughout the year, we work with these groups to host unique events on our grounds to bring awareness to our shared goals.
Woof, Wag + Walk
Sunday, June 4th · 11AM to 2PM
Join us for a family-friendly day of recreational enjoyment for pets and parents alike at Laurel Hill’s signature pet event, Woof, Wag + Walk! Laurel Hill has partnered with Women’s Animal Center for this special fundraiser!
The event will offer fun and interactive activity stations like: Make a treat/build your own Pup Cup, make an enrichment toy for a shelter pet, pet and people caricatures, plus human refreshments available for purchase. Our friends at Saint Rocco’s Treats are kindly providing samples of their yummy dog treats for the pup attendees. Women’s Animal Center will have a welcome table with information about adoptable pets, community programming, dog training, and raffle fundraiser.
The event will also include a pet-friendly walking tour of Laurel Hill East featuring some of our favorite pet stories. Stories you’ll hear on the tour include those of animal rights activists, the author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” and of course, Annie Lowry & Emmeline Bedell – founders and early members of the Women’s Animal Center, and instrumental in the movement to install watering stations for horses in Philadelphia. Two one-hour tour time slots will be available for the tour: 11:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
All four-legged friends are welcome at this pet-friendly event but they must be socialized to be around other animals and on a leash at all times.
