Welcome to Harbor Hounds.
Harbor Hounds is a Charity Dog Walk held in downtown Gig Harbor, Washington's Maritime City, along the spectacular waterfront. Event sponsors set up booths to display and/or sell their products and services between two end-point locations: Skansie Park and Donkey Creek Park. Registered Dog Walkers walk with their best friend(s) between these two locations, at their leisure, visiting booths, making friends and getting Raffle Cards stamped by the participating sponsors for a chance to win spectacular Harbor Hounds prize packages (see the Harbor Hounds Prizes page). And, we have plenty of sponsor provided watering holes along the way. There are also a number of fun contests for you to show off your dog. Categories include: Best Tricks, Best Kisser (the dog), Best Tail Wagger, Best Dressed, and our fun musical Sit and Stay contest. The day is full of fun and excitement to keep you and your hounds entertained throughout.
To register, click on the "Registration" tab in the menu on the left-hand side of this page. You will register yourself as a Dog Walker and choose a team name for you and your dog (most people will use their Dog's Name as or in the Team Name). Once you have completed the Registration Process, a Team Page will be provided whereby your friends and family can make pledges in support of you and your hound in this event. The Top 5 teams, in terms of total pledges received, will receive fantastic prizes donated by Ken Walker Jewelers (see the Harbor Hounds Prizes page). Be sure to invite all of your friends to make a donation to your team.
All proceeds from Harbor Hounds Sponsors, Registration and Pledges go directly to The Prison Pet Partnership, Local Gig Harbor Charities and International Projects supported through the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor, Midday.
Sponsorship Opportunities are also available. Please visit the "Sponsor Our Event" tab for more information.
So, come on, join the fun. And, meet other dog lovers who share your passion. You can also follow us on Facebook while you wait for the walk to get here. We welcome your friendship and pictures of your Harbor Hounds throughout the year.
