The 2017 Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs raised $84,000!

Thank you to all our sponsors, participants, donors and volunteers – it would not have been the success it was without all of you.

Mark your calendars for March 30th, 2018 – this will be NSD’s 20th annual Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs.

Each year, thousands of plastic eggs are filled with dog treats and hidden over a defined area of a local park. Each egg contains a dog treat and a sticker, representing a chance to win one of hundreds of great prizes.

Registrants receive two egg cartons, giving them the opportunity to collect up to 24 eggs.

Participants who collect donations on NSD’s behalf are eligible to collect more eggs based on the dollar value of the donations they received:

  • $50 to 150 raised: one additional egg carton will be provided
  • $151 to 300 raised: two additional egg cartons will be provided
  • $301 to 500 raised: three additional egg cartons will be provided
  • $501 or more raised: four additional egg cartons will be provided

Prize Collection: A prize card is given to all participants upon registration. Once the hunt is complete, the stickers from the collected eggs are transferred to the prize card. The prize card is then submitted to a volunteer who distributes the prizes that have been won.

Grand Prizes: Additional grand prizes are awarded to individuals with the highest dollar value of donations collected per location. Online pledge collection is an easy and effective way to collect donations. Get registered and start fundraising today!


  • Registrants must register and be accompanied by at least one dog; there is a limit of one registration per participating dog.
