The 25th Annual Tailwagger’s Trot!

Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 21, 2014  10:00AM
Buchanan Park
905 Buchanan Avenue

The Tailwagger’s Trot is our biggest fundraiser event of the year! Peo­ple from all over secure pledges from their fam­ily, friends, neigh­bors, their friend’s friends, their family’s neigh­bors… (you get the idea!) and then they come together to trot for our community’s home­less ani­mals. Most trot­ters come with their dogs, but some trot with their cats in strollers, their pet rat in a cozy car­rier, their fer­ret rid­ing on their shoul­der or their pet goat on a leash! At the con­clu­sion of the walk, there will be family-friendly fun, enter­tain­ment, food ven­dors, arts & crafts and more!

A Mes­sage from the King of the Trot!

Hi, Yogi here! I have the dis­tin­guished honor of rep­re­sent­ing the Humane League of Lan­caster County as the King of the 25th Annual Tailwagger’s Trot! I know I have some pretty big paws to fill, but being the bold Pem­broke Welsh Corgi that I am, I’m excited for the chal­lenge and hope that you’ll trot along with me for all the home­less pets in Lan­caster County! The Humane League is also seek­ing spon­sors and ven­dors to make this excit­ing 25th anniver­sary Trot big­ger and bet­ter than any pre­vi­ous year!


It was only one year ago that I found myself home­less at just a few months old. But the Humane League quickly placed me with a won­der­ful fos­ter fam­ily who gave me more love than I thought I deserved. My fos­ter fam­ily loved me so much that they decided to give me a per­ma­nent home! (Just between you and me, they never intended to give me up!) Not only do I have amaz­ing par­ents, but I also gained four Corgi sis­ters! Our par­ents take us to the county park to play all the time and I’ve never again doubted that I’m loved and wanted. I’m one lucky pup, but there are so many other pets that are rely­ing on the Humane League to give them the care they need and help them find the hap­pi­ness I’ve found.


The 25th Annual Tailwagger’s Trot will take place on Sep­tem­ber 21st and there are many ways you can become involved and help pets like me! By becom­ing a spon­sor for the Tailwagger’s Trot, you can make a huge impact on Lancaster’s home­less pets. With spon­sor­ship pack­ages rang­ing from $50 to $3,000, there’s a spon­sor­ship pack­age to fit your or your busi­ness’ bud­get. In addi­tion, we are seek­ing ven­dors, arti­sans, crafters, and other non-profits to take part in the activ­i­ties at Buchanan Park. Over 70 ven­dors came out in sup­port last year and we’re look­ing to have even more this year!

With over 1,200 dogs and peo­ple in atten­dance, the Tailwagger’s Trot is always a lot of fun and I can’t wait to soak up all the atten­tion as the King of the whole event! Whether you decide to spon­sor the Trot or join in on the fun as a ven­dor, rest assured that every penny of the pro­ceeds goes to help ani­mals just like me live happy and healthy lives with fam­i­lies who love them!

See you at the Trot!



Here I am with my won­der­ful own­ers, Philip Wenger & Steven T. Dinnocenti!
