The Corgi Walk in the Pearl began 10 years by dog fancier Lynde Paule, who wished to create a venue to raise money to care for injured, abused, abandoned, or neglected dogs, specifically Corgis.
The annual Walk, held on the third Saturday of each August, raises money for both Oregon Humane Society and Corgi Rescue. The Corgi Walk has grown since it began. In the first year, between 50 and 60 Corgis participated in the Corgi Walk and $1,500 was raised. Last year 400 Corgis from Oregon, Washington, and California participated and $11,000 was raised.
Registration is $25 for the first Corgi and $15 for every additional Corgi or dog sibling of the Corgi. All participating dogs receive a matching scarf to wear in the 1.2 mile parade through the Pearl District.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary we are featuring a Corgi Fashion Show and a Doggy Ice Cream Social immediately following the Walk.
The Walk begins at 10 am on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 235 NW Park at the intersection of NW Park and NW Everett in the Pearl district of downtown Portland.
