Taking a Walk on the Wild Side

For the third year in a row, VAA employees raised funds and participated with their canine companions in the Walk for Animals, the nation’s largest human / animal walk fundraising event. Thousands of people, pets and other four-legged friends took part in this Animal Humane Society fundraising event to help support animals in need in our community.

VAA’s “Team Egrets” raised $1,320 for the Animal Humane Society, and the 2019 Walk for Animals event surpassed its goal of raising $1 million. Every dollar raised helps provide medical treatment, behavior rehabilitation programs and care to the more than 23,000 animals served by the Animal Humane Society’s four Minnesota shelters each year.

“Many of our employees are very passionate about animals, and it’s amazing to join thousands of other people and animals gathered for such a good cause,” says Lacey Anderson, Project Assistant, and one of VAA’s outreach event organizers. “This is a fun, interactive event for our company to participate in, and it’s also great to be able to help an organization right in our area.”
