25th Annual Tailwagger’s Trot
Sunday, September 21, 2014 10:00AM
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!
Last year’s Tailwagger’s Trot a huge success and, with YOUR help, we anticipate this year’s Trot to be bigger and better than ever before! Enjoy a video and photos from last year’s fun featured below and make sure you join us again this year!
