Thank You bow-WOW-walk Sponsors and Walkers!


Thanks to our pack of incredible supporters, the Fourth Annual bow-WOW-walk on April 8th was a tremendous success! The totals have been finalized and nearly $72,000 was raised to benefit the animals at the CASPCA–that’s more than $11,000 over our goal! Team Captain Kim Matsko with Natural Pet Essentials led the pack with $10,790 raised, and more than 400 walkers turned out to strut their stuff to support the animals and life-saving care at the CASPCA.

We’d like to again thank all of our wonderful sponsors, including BMW of Charlottesville, Crutchfield and Virginia National Bank, bow-WOW-walk Chair Kim Matsko of Natural Pet Essentials, PJ Stiles and Kevin Graham of Hot 101.9 for emceeing, media sponsor NBC29 and all of our spectacular volunteers for their hard work.
