The 35th edition of the fundraiser was held at Lansdowne Park on Sunday, Sept. 24 and the OHS says hundreds were in attendance, bringing along their pets to participate.
About 1,200 people with more than 600 dogs signed up for the races and fundraised in support of homeless animals in Ottawa.
“We were thrilled to see so much support from the community at the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Run,” said Lori Marcantonio, OHS director of development. “It’s our biggest fundraising event for the animals and helps the OHS care for thousands of animals each year.”
