Paws and Feet 5k Run/ Walk & Doggie Fun Day

Register Now! May 4, 2024 @ Voorhees Town Center

What is AWA's Paws & Feet?

Animal Welfare Association’s signature event, the Paws & Feet 5k Run/Walk and Doggie Fun Day is an annual fundraising 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.

Run, Walk or Ramble

You can sign up to run in our 5k and go for a personal best time, or take it easy as you walk the distance with your pup and enjoy the sunshine.

If you’re not up for a full 5k, you can take part in our shorter Rescue Ramble, focused on fun for all. Be sure to dress up your pet (and yourself) for a chance to win our costume contest.

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

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 $1,000 raised saves the life of one shelter dog!
