Join Vested Interest in K9s at the German Shepherd Rescue of New England, Inc. annual “Walk n Wag” dog walk
Come join us and many other dog lovers for a day filled with family and canine fun while helping us raise money for homeless dogs!  The day will begin with  a pleasant 2 mile walk in the beautiful woods at Borderland State Park. A walk leader and water for all walkers and dogs will be provided. All well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The day will be filled with enjoyable activities including an agility demonstration, canine good citizen testing, the parade of rescue dogs, doggie games, raffles, vendors and more. Joining us, we’ll have many dog rescue groups and vendors with wonderful dog related items for sale.

  • Vested Interest in K9’s Inc. representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the K9 vesting program and a limited supply of the ever popular “Hog Wild for K9s” tee shirts will be available for purchase along with the VIK9’s car magnets. 
  • Stop by and take a photo with our newest German Shepherd Mascot “K9 Justice”
  • Check out the K9 demonstration at 2pm, which will be provided by the Taunton Police K9 team and the MBTA Transit Police K9 teams.

Children are invited to come with their parents, however only adults 18 and over can hold dog’s leash.

Over the past years their annual walk has been a great success. This year the walk will again be one of the major fundraising events. The goal is to raise funds for the countless numbers of German Shepherd Dogs in need throughout New England. All money raised will go for the care of the dogs in GSRNE’s foster care program. Because we are a fully volunteer, 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we rely on the generosity of GSD-lovers to fund our programs. This is one of two major fundraisers we have each year.

You can help by collecting as many pledges as possible! Your sponsor sheet and checks are due the day of the walk; please bring to the registration table between 10-11am.
