The Animal Welfare Association’s Annual Paws and Feet Run 5K Race and Doggie Fun Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2015 at Cooper River Park in Pennsauken, NJ. AWA counts on the money raised from the event to provide shelter and medical care to over 2,000 homeless dogs and cats that AWA adopts out each year. Last year, animal lovers and members of the community helped raise over $100,000 for the animals, making it the highest grossing event in AWA history.
“This year’s theme is “Superheroes” and our fundraising goal is set for $110,000,” said Maria Clarke, AWA’s Director of Events, Business, and Community Relations. “Thousands of people participated in the run and walk in 2014, but Paws and Feet is more than just a race and walk. “It’s a celebration of the human animal bond. We believe that ordinary people do extraordinary things for pets, we see this everyday in our work and through our interactions with people. We want to encourage folks to unleash their inner superhero and help us raise the funds necessary for us to be able to help more people and pets in 2015.”
After the race/walk, people and their dogs can participate in the fun-filled day of superhero-themed activities, grab a bite to eat, shop for pet related items from vendors and view adoptable animals from non-profit animal shelters and rescue groups.
Returning this year are the Jersey Disc Devils and their High Flying K-9 Athletes. Six of their performance dogs will dazzle you with their high-flying leaps in the air. Police Working Dogs will wow you with their amazing skills. Dogs can bob for hot dogs, play musical sit, run through the agility course, romp in the doggie swimming pools, and more. Visit the AWA’s signature “Bark-tini Bar for Dogs” for a “Joker-tini” or “K9 Kerpunch” and participate in the Doggie Superhero Costume Contest. Want to be a part of the fun? Visit the event website and register online at www.awanj.org/pf2015. All superheroes are welcome!
