Join Us


Joshua Tree No-Kill Shelter is more than a place where animals find new homes; it’s a community where people come together to celebrate and support animal welfare. Our events are a vital part of our mission, raising funds, awareness, and creating lasting memories. We invite you to join us in making a difference, one event at a time.

Annual Events

Woof Walk

  • Date: April 6, 2024, 9AM-3PM (11th Annual Date TBD)
  • Location: Pioneertown, CA
  • Details: Our 10th Annual Woof Walk was filled with fun, love and community spirit in the picturesque setting of Pioneertown. The day included a parade of dogs and their people strutting their stuff down Mane Street, followed by award-winning musician Jesika Von Rabbit with Lee Joseph (Bunny & Claude), and the featured presenter, Danielle Wall, our local snake wrangler and educator. The event featured live and silent auctions, big money and quilt raffles, local vendors, and great food. All proceeds directly support the shelter and our no-kill mission.
