We are so excited for Labapalooza, which includes our annual walk-a-thon!

This is going to be a day of fun for the whole family! Register to walk with us to raise money to save more labs. And, stay for a day of fun!  Bring your children and your pups (ANY breed welcome!) to enjoy  music, games for the pups, games for your children, doggie dips at the beach and food for the whole family!   We will have all kinds of vendors both doggie products and non-doggie products.  Agenda will be updated as we add fun events for the day. 

Labapalooza is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  This year we have set the goal at $40,000.  These funds are critical to us and will be used to provide medical care, pay for transport, training, boarding and other costs associated with saving the lives of dogs in need.  We can't do this without you.  You can support us in the following ways:

  • Register to walk as an individual or as a team.
  • Purchase a ticket for the event
  • Sign up as a sponsor
  • Donate to a walker or a team

There will be two options for the walk, one will be a short walk for those of you with elderly pups who would just like a short stroll (.25 miles) and then a longer walk (1.5 miles) for those of you with pups that have a bit more energy! 

We'll have prizes for the top fundraisers, and prizes for different level of fundraising.


  • Raise $500 - receive a Lu's Labs ball cap
  • Raise $1000 - receive a Lu's Labs zipper hoodie
  • Raise $2,000 - receive a $100 Amazon gift card
  • The person that raises the most money overall will receive a grab bag full of goodies, in addition to the prizes listed!

Some of the Planned Activities:

  • We'll have great music from our DJ  
  • Face Painting for kiddos!
  • Maribeth Decker of Sacred Grove will be doing readings of your pets (live or over the rainbow bridge)
  • Meat My Buns Food Truck will provide you with a great lunch!
