Grab your leashes for a day of FUNdraising for homeless animals!

Spring has sprung and it’s time to step into gear and walk to help Brevard’s homeless pets at the SPCA of Brevard’s seventh annual Happy Tails Dog Stroll-A-Thon on Saturday, April 2 at Sand Point Park in Titusville. Participants can register online at and click on the events tab or stop by the SPCA Adoption Center at 6035 Sisson Road to pick up registration information.

The Stroll-A-Thon, which still has openings for sponsors, will benefit the SPCA’s continued commitment to protect and provide a voice to the homeless animals in Brevard. The SPCA found homes for nearly 2,300 animals last year; many of which were animals saved from other shelters and would not have made it out alive without the SPCA’s intervention. Event registration is free; there will be premiums for individual participants based on levels achieved and pack (team) participation is encouraged with a competition for the “Pack of the Year” title.

Registration and check-in starts at 9 am and the Stroll-A-Thon begins at 10 am. Vaccinated, socialized dogs on 6-foot or shorter leashes are welcome to this fun-for-the-family event! This year’s Stroll Grand Marshall will be Sheriff Wayne Ivey. The leisurely stroll around Sand Point Park includes optional points such as a “show us your trick” station where your canine companion can show off his coolest trick to receive a treat and water stations, too. After the Stroll, stop by the Vendor Village where you will find food, merchandise, rescues with adoptable pets and a Kissing Booth to receive a smooch from an adoptable pooch. This year’s event will also feature an adoptable dog fashion show and a dog trick/talent contest. The SPCA Clinic will also provide low-cost mobile vaccines at the event for the very first time! Back by popular demand...the Doggie Fun Zone, the amazing, thrilling and entertaining fun and run multi-dimensional lure-motivated obstacle course!
