The Pasadena Humane Society rang in October and National Walk Your Dog Week with the Wiggle Waggle Walk, a one- or three-mile jaunt around the Rose Bowl to raise money for the Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA, which provides shelter, food, and vet care for more than 12,000 animals. The events was accompanied by a full day of events such as K-9 demonstrations, contests, and agility shows. Participating was Marlowe the dog and her humans, one of which is Wil Wheaton.
Marlowe — with her humans’ help — recorded this video of the event. Follow adorable Marlowe, herself a rescue, as she walks with her “weird” parents, making friends along the way and pawsing to take a puppy nap. Throughout the walk, Marlowe gets to wear a green bandana, signifying her graduation from the Pasadena Humane Society. It was a pretty hot day, so Marlowe was careful to drink plenty of water and even got a doggie cupcake at the end.
Thanks to sponsored walkers such as Marlowe and her family, the Pasadena Humane Society surpassed its $300,000 goal by $16,000. The money will help other animals like Marlowe find their forever homes.
