Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest 2020 FAQ

A Walk for the Animals like Never Before

Since the beginning of the year, over 2,000 pets have been brought to Lollypop Farm in need of a second chance. Now more than ever these homeless and abused pets need you to be a hero. While we have always loved having all you here at Lollypop Farm to celebrate with a huge festival, we know that for this year the Walk for the Animals will need to look a little different. But that doesn't mean we can't still have fun making second chances possible for the pets in our community who need us most!

Here's an update on the exciting things to come for the 2020 Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest:

Weekly Challenges

Every week we'll be celebrating your life-saving fundraising efforts leading up to the Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest on Saturday, September 26th with challenges and exciting prizes! Starting Monday, August 17th we'll be hosting 6 weekly online challenges for you and your fundraising teams to participate in with fun prizes! You could win everything from gift cards to spoil your own furry friends with to kitten parties brought to you by Lollypop Farm!

Schedule Your Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest

Be a hero and make an appointment to walk at the Lollypop Farm campus between September 21 and October 5. We’ll be offering limited admission chances to experience the beauty of our Farm Walk. Bring your own pet and witness the direct impact of your support in person. We’ll have safety precautions in place, and ask that you wear a mask. When you make an appointment to walk on September 26 at Lollypop Farm, we’ll have exciting pop-up entertainment and sponsors present to cheer you on!

Be a Hero at Home

Register for a Barktober Fest Block Party! We’ll send you everything you need to host your very own mini Barktober Fest. Let’s just call it a party in a box. You can choose this option to show your support right from your own front yard. Remember, it’s not where you walk - it’s who you walk with, and your pet is the best walking partner around.

Make Your Mark

Your support has never meant more. When you complete your walk -either on campus or from afar - we’ll place a temporary marker on our front lawn showcasing your lasting impact for the homeless and abused animals of Lollypop Farm. Together we can make a difference, and we hope you will help us fill our front lawn with a showcase of love for the animals of Lollypop Farm.

Thank you for your continued support. Please register today! Registrants will be kept updated on changes as we continue to update this year's event for a successful life-saving event for the pets in our community.
