3 to See: Virtual Events, Tours, and Shows


It’s the Humane Society’s biggest event of the year — and this year it’s going virtual on June 27. Celebrate finding adoptive homes for more than 1,400 pets with the Tacoma Pierce County Humane Society’s 30th annual Dog-A-Thon, a crucial community fundraising event that allows the shelter to continue to care for nearly 10,000 pets each year. You can register for free, then, as a participant, you can either fundraise as an individual or as part of a team, competing with other teams to help raise funds for Pierce County’s pets in need. The virtual event will be hosted through Facebook with team updates, adoptable pets, a pet CPR demonstration, and more.
