Join us for the 7th Annual bow-WOW-walk, a K-9 2.5K to support the animals and lifesaving programs of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. The walk will begin at IX Art Park and wind through Charlottesville’s historic downtown mall before returning to IX Art Park for a post-walk festival sure to WOW our doggie friends! The post-walk festival will feature human and doggie entertainment, canine competitions, treats for pups, and a pack of animal-friendly sponsors.
