Walk For Animals

Join Our Team: Team Bella!

In honor of Bella and as animal lovers, Building Arts will be a team!

Animals in our community rely on compassionate individuals like you every day to find the second chances they deserve. Animal Humane Society’s Walk for Animals is your chance to make a difference in their lives.

The Walk for Animals brings together more than 8,000 people and 3,000 animals to wag, walk, and raise funds for animals in need across Minnesota.

Every dollar raised for the Walk helps provide medical treatment, behavior programs, and nurturing care to the nearly 25,000 animals who come to our five Minnesota shelters every year.
