South County Tail Waggers is excited to present the 5th Annual 5K WALKING Wagathon fundraiser!!!

The proceeds of this fundraiser will go to saving lives and preventing unwanted litters of puppies by providing spay & neuter support in the South County. In just seven years, one unspayed-female dog and her offspring can produce 97,000 puppies! We can’t rescue and adopt our way out of this crisis. We must get in front of it!

We need your help to fulfill this goal. YOU can make an impact. You can contribute to the solution by participating in what will be a wonderful, family-fun event!!! Participants will enjoy:

  • Complimentary Wagathon t-shirt (must register by Sept 30th)
  • SCTW Wagathon bag
  • 3rd Annual 5K bib 
  • Music by DJ Mistik
  • Food trucks
  • Giveaways
  • Snacks & water
  • and MORE!
Check-in begins at 8:00 AM. The 5K Walk will start around 9:00 AM at Christmas Hill on the Ranch Side, will head down the levy, past Solarsano Middle School, and will turn back around on the levy to head back to the starting point.


Can I bring my dog?
OF COURSE. We are asking that each participant walk only one dog each.  Dogs must be escorted by adults only. 

Are leashes required?
YES. We are also requiring that ONLY lead leashes are to be used -- absolutely NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES. This is for the safety of all of the participants and their dogs.

Can we run the 5K with our dog if we would like to?
The Wagathon is a walking-only event. With the number of participants and their dogs, and many being novices to this type of event, we are asking that everyone walks while keeping a safe distance between other participants and their dogs. This will help to provide a calm and low-key environment for all of the dog participants.

The deadline to purchase tickets is October 6th.
