Support the Humane Society of Skagit Valley by taking part in this fun virtual fundraiser for the whole family! The Virtual Walk-a-Thon and Deputy Anne Jackson Memorial Walk is an annual fundraiser to raise community funds in support of our mission at HSSV.
Anne Jackson, a great friend and supporter of HSSV was killed in the line of duty in 2008. You can read more about her here.

Walk With Us to Support Animals in Need!
At 10 am on the day of the Walk-a-thon, registrants will join in the virtual experience. Whether you are walking on a treadmill, in your neighborhood, or even in your living room, you will join in the event and represent it on social media. We encourage you to take photos or videos and tag HSSV in your posts so we can share with the community on our social media feeds. If you can’t make it on the 12th, you can walk some other time that works for you and just upload their photos or videos on the 12th. We encourage you to wear your event t-shirt during the walk!
