Doggie Dash & Dawdle is Animal Humane’s signature event & largest fundraiser. Recognized as Albuquerque’s must-attend event for pets & the people who love them, Doggie Dash attracts thousands of attendees each year.

This year, with our community’s safety top-of-mind, we have made the decision to host our 38th Annual Doggie Dash as a virtual event.

Any time you want to paw-ty with us from now through Sunday, November 1, 2020.


Wherever you want to Dash or Dawdle!


Proceeds from Doggie Dash & Dawdle benefit the pets in Animal Humane’s loving care & our community programs, too. Funds raised during this cat-tastic event help us continue our mission to improve the lives of New Mexico’s cats & dogs through sheltering, adoptions, humane education & veterinary services. We can’t accomplish what we do, without you!

Proudly presented by Garcia Subaru, our Leader of the Pack Sponsor!
