Over 5,000 animals each year rely on the support and resources of Anderson Animal Shelter.

It’s easy to get involved:

2. Walk “virtually” when and where you choose
3. Raise money for animals and earn monthly prizes

Now, more than ever, it is important for all of us to stay active and connected. Although Anderson’s Walk4Animals is not a “traditional style” walk this year, we can all come together to support a great cause –to get healthy while saving animals.
