Maryland SPCA’s March for the Animals Rescheduled to May 31

Share the News

The 20th annual March for the Animals walk-a-thon and festival, the Maryland SPCA’s largest fundraising event of the year, has been re-scheduled to May 31, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Druid Hill Park.  The event was originally scheduled April 26.


Because the weather will likely be warmer than it would have been in April, the event will start and end a little earlier.

Despite the date change, organizers still plan to have plenty of fun activities including a 1.5 mile walk-a-thon and pet costume contest. Have your photo with your pet taken at the photo booth, and browse through the “flea-less” market. Kids will enjoy making crafts at the Kids’ Zone.  Adoptable pets from the Maryland SPCA will be there to meet and greet, and some of vendors from the originally scheduled march, including several food trucks, will be returning.


The event is the Maryland SPCA’s most important fundraiser of the year. The group hopes to raise $400,000 to provide safe shelter, meals, medical care and enrichment to the thousands of pets that come to the Maryland SPCA this year needing our help.

Visit the March for the Animals website for new details including the revised schedule for the day. If you registered for the original event, you do not need to register again.  If you registered online, your personal fundraising page is still active on the website.

If you have not registered, you can still do so and set up your personal fundraising page. Event-day registration will take place at the walk-a-thon starting at 9 a.m.
