We can’t wait to see you at Doggie Dash this Saturday!

We want you to get the most out of your Doggie Dash experience, so please read below for detailed instructions on where and when to set up your sponsor booth, as well as important day-of reminders. It’s a LOT of information, but all very important! Please read all the way to the bottom. 

Before Doggie Dash
Where to Go:
  • Doggie Dash is held at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, SW Naito Pkwy between SW Pine and SW Stark Streets.
  • When you arrive at the park, pull your vehicle onto the paved area under the Morrison Bridge and wait there until a Doggie Dash representative greets you. You will then be escorted to your booth space in the park.
  • Do NOT drive onto the park grass without an escort. The park has many sprinkler heads and your escort will help you navigate a clear path to your booth. If you enter the park without an escort and damage any park property, you will be held responsible.
When to Set Up:
  • Unless alternative arrangements were made with OHS staff, booths must be set up between 4 – 8 p.m. on Friday, May 10, or 5 – 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 11.
  • If you are renting or using a complimentary canopy from OHS, it will be set up by 4 p.m. on Friday, May 10. If you are bringing your own canopy, we will have volunteers onsite who can assist you with set-up.
  • The only time vehicles are permitted in the park is between 4 – 8 p.m. on Friday, and between 5 – 7 a.m. on Saturday. All vehicles must be out of the park no later than 7 a.m. the morning of May 11,and are not allowed to be left in the park overnight.
  • OHS will provide security in the park Friday night, but is not responsible for stolen goods.
  • Silver, Gold, and Presenting Sponsors may drop off their seawall banners to OHS by 2 p.m. on Friday, May 10 and we will deliver them to the park for you.
During Doggie Dash

What to Expect at the Event:
  • Unless prior arrangements have been made with OHS staff, you cannot park under the Morrison Bridge during Doggie Dash. Smart Park Garages are located at: SW 1st & Jefferson, SW 3rd & Alder, SW 4th & Yamhill, and NW Naito & Davis.
  • Doggie Dash registration officially opens at 7:30 a.m. Please have your booth ready for visitors by 7:30 a.m.
  • The Pancake Tent and Libation Station booths will begin service at 8 a.m.
  • Doggie Dash ends at 1 p.m.

Raffle Item Requirement:
  • Unless waived by OHS staff, all sponsors are required to donate one item to be used in the Doggie Dash Raffle. This raffle helps raise valuable funds to support the animals and is another great opportunity to promote your company at the event. (Non-profit organizations are exempt from this requirement.)
  • The raffle item must have a retail value of $25 or more.
  • Please bring the raffle item with you on Saturday, May 11. You will be directed to the OHS raffle booth where you will be provided with a donation receipt for the item.
  • Be sure to include promotional materials (business cards, brochures, etc.) to be displayed with your item! If you bring a gift certificate, please also bring a display and description to communicate the value and terms of the gift certificate.
After Doggie Dash

When and How to Pack Up Your Booth:
  • Booths must be packed up immediately following but not before the end of the event at 1 p.m.
  • Sponsors are responsible for transporting all trash, compost and recyclables (i.e., cardboard) to the designated on-site dumpsters, located under the Morrison Bridge.

Additional Event Information
  • Per ADA requirements, vendors will make their services and products available to all people and come out of their booth area to assist a customer if needed.
  • No polystyrene foam products will be allowed for food or drink distribution.
  • Unless prior arrangements have been made with OHS staff, no water connections or electrical connections are provided at vendor booths.
  • Booths may not be shared with another company or organization, unless prior approval has been granted by OHS staff.
  • Neither vendors nor others may sell pets on or near the event grounds.
  • Items given out at booths should be safe for children and pets. Please ask owners before giving their pet a treat due to possible pet food allergies. 
  • You may bring your dog with you! Dogs must have good temperaments and need to be kenneled or kept on a leash at all times. Pick up after your pet. Dogs must be licensed and current on Parvo and Rabies vaccinations. Do not bring female dogs in heat.

Virtual Goodie Bag
  • Sponsors at the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Presenting levels have the option of being included in a post-event virtual goodie bag that will be circulated to all Doggie Dash registrants after the event. If you would like your company to be included in the goodie bag, please submit your discount code, coupon or offer to sarahy@oregonhumane.org by Tuesday, May 14.
