Walktail 2020

Bissell Pet Foundation

Walktail 2020 has ended, if you would like to make a gift to support BISSELL Pet Foundation's lifesaving efforts visit bissellpetfoundation.org/donate to help homeless pets find forever homes!

Walktail - National Walkathon
Friday, May 1 – Sunday, May 3
Walk your tail off for homeless pets across the country!
BISSELL Pet Foundation invites you to participate in the first-ever, national Walktail fundraiser for homeless pets who need our help now more than ever. Social distancing and stay at home orders have forced the foundation to cancel BISSELL Blocktail Party, its biggest annual fundraiser that provides critical financial support for shelters across the country. To help BPF continue its lifesaving work, challenge your friends, family, co-workers and furry companions and walk to save lives! 
The fundraising process is easy, and you can pick where and when you want to walk…at a safe distance, of course.* We are suggesting 10 miles over the 3 days. Join with walkers from coast-to-coast for the "Best DOG-GONE Walk" in the country! 100% of your donation goes to support pets in shelters.
Ready to walk? Begin by clicking the "Start Fundraising" button above to setup your Walktail profile, the steps are easy!

Want to donate but don't have a friend to support? Donate to BPF!

BARK PRIZE® Gift at Stake!
We love hearing why you walk! As we collect photos, videos and stories, we notice the underlying passion for rescue. As a thank you, BPF will be selecting a random BARK PRIZE gift recipient to surprise. We're so grateful to our many supporters who are choosing to make a difference and support homeless pets across the country!
