What Is AWA's Paws & Feet 5k & Doggie Fun Day?

Animal Welfare Association’s signature annual event, the Paws & Feet 5k Run/ Walk and Doggie Fun Day is a community event celebrating the unbreakable bond between humans and their pets.

It’s a day full of fun activities for the whole family, including your furry best friends! We’ll have live entertainment, local small business vendors, children’s activities, food and drink from local favorites, and more!

Proceeds from the event go directly to funding AWA’s lifesaving programs, which touch tens of thousands in our community each year.

Paws & Feet 5k Run/ Walk and Rescue Ramble

The headlining events of the day are the Paws & Feet 5k and this year’s new and improved Rescue Ramble. You can sign up to run in our 5k and go for a personal best time, or take it easy and walk it with your pup and just enjoy the sunshine.

The Paws & Feet Rescue Ramble is a shorter stroll focused on fun for all. Participants are encouraged to dress themselves and their pets up in hopes of winning prizes for best costume and more while enjoying a walk around the Paws & Feet grounds!

Fundraising Prizes

How Your Participation Saves Lives

All of the funds raised during the Paws & Feet 5k & Doggie Fun Day go toward saving the lives of homeless animals year round!

AWA operates the oldest and largest low-cost spay/neuter clinic, adoption center and no kill animal shelter in South Jersey. We do not receive funds from the government or national groups. We rely upon local donations to fund our life-saving programs.

By fundraising for Paws and Feet, you’ll impact the lives of the animals in our care. On average – every $1000 raised saves the life of one shelter dog!
