Ninth Annual SPCA Cincinnati Doggie Dash

Hundreds of dogs and their two-legged friends will teach others about the humane treatment of animals when they take part in the ninth annual SPCA Cincinnati Doggie Dash Walk for Kindness on Saturday, May 28 at 10:00 a.m. along the Ohio River starting at Sawyer Point. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

The ‘dash’ will help raise money for SPCA Cincinnati. Local celebrities will be on hand to lend their support. There will also be food, fun, a Frisbee contest, an agility course and more!

Dashers are encouraged to collect pledges for the walk. Prizes will go to the top three people with the most money in pledges. Prizes include four Diamond seats to the Cincinnati Reds, four Scout seats to the Reds and four Club seats to the Reds. A printable pledge sheet/registration form is available online at or by clicking here.

The two-mile walk along the Ohio River begins at Sawyer Point (corner of E. Pete Rose Way and Eggleston Avenue) and will be held rain or shine. Walkers without dogs are also welcome.
