Bellevue Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk

4k with your 4-legged friend on the 4th of July

The annual Bellevue Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk is a non-competitive 4k event that starts and finishes near Ashwood Park in Downtown Bellevue (next to Bellevue Library) and benefits Seattle Humane in Bellevue. The ​event takes place every 4th of July in appreciation that while Independence Day is a time for fun and celebration, it is also a stressful time for pets due to loud noises and bright sights.

This noncompetitive 4-kilometer jog & walk will keep dogs active to ease them into the holiday and also supports our local open-door animal shelter, Seattle Humane in Bellevue. We are proud to have raised $​5,700 for Seattle Humane in Bellevue since the first event in 2013.

Perhaps the best part about the Bellevue Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk is the opportunity to meet up with fellow pet lovers and create new friendships.
