24 Hour Walk for Paws without Pause

Devin Meads has always loved animals and the outdoors, so when he decided he wanted to do something meaningful for his 46th birthday on March 21, 2021, the 24 Hour Walk for Paws without Pause was born.  Devin knew that because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Victoria Humane Society was very limited in what they could do for fundraising and he wanted to help.  

Devin and his wife learned about animal fostering after they lost their first dog and were looking for another to complete their home.  They found her and then discovered a community network of animal foster societies across Canada and decided they needed to be a part of it.  That was 11 years ago.  They have actively been fostering with VHS since it started in 2013.  They have 2 dogs and 2 cats of their own while fostering other dogs, kittens and puppies; primarily litters of puppies; and have had over 500 puppies come through their home before being successfully adopted.

As a foster, Devin knows how much VHS relies on fundraising to help animals and the pandemic has severely limited that.  The 24 Hour Walk for Paws Without Pause is Devin Meads walking for 24 hours straight to raise money for Victoria Humane Society.  Money is being raised on the basis of pledges per kilometre he completes during the 24 hours.  He will be starting in Langford and walking along the TransCanada Highway #1 heading up-island starting at 8:00am, Saturday, March 20, 2021 until 8:00am, Sunday, March 21, 2021.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
