Paws and Feet 5k Race & Doggie Fun Day

May 19, 2018
Cooper River Park, Pennsauken, NJ

9 AM – 2 PM

Fun, Fur and Fundraising!

Paws and Feet 5K Race and Doggie Fun Day presented by the Camden County Board of Freeholders is AWA’s largest community event and celebrates the bond between humans and their pets. The day includes live music, food, activities, and games for the entire family. Festivities kick off with a 5K run and walk and a 1-mile fun walk and concludes with a Doggie Fun Day. This year we are pleased to be bringing this event back to Cooper River Park!

Why is your participation so important?

We will use the funds you raise to save the lives of animals! 

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 will impact the lives of the animals in our care.

Earn prizes as you fundraise.

As you reach certain fundraising levels, you will earn fun prizes. The more money you raise, the more prizes you will earn. 

Registration opens on February 1, 2018.
