Paws and Feet 5k Race & Doggie Fun Day

June 4th, 2022   9am – 2pm   Voorhees Town Center

For over 40 years, Paws and Feet Doggie Fun Day has been an iconic community event that celebrates the very special bond between humans and their pets. This fun-filled day will be AWA’s largest fundraiser event of the year – this year with a twist: COME! PLAY! STAY!

  • COME! start your day with AWA’s 5K Fun Run or Smile Mile Walk with Furry Friends.
  • PLAY! all day with lots of food trucks, people and furry friend entertainment at the Barktini Bar, Cat Zone and more, fun for all ages and species!
  • STAY! for afternoon fun in the “Big Dog” Zone: entertainment, food trucks, corn hole and much more!

New Year, New Building, Same Mission: Our goal for this year is to raise $60,000 in support of animals who need our help. Nearly $1,000 a day is spent on medical care and supplies for the animals.
We hope you will join us at AWA’s biggest FUNdraiser of the year: Paws and Feet. Bring your family and furry friends!

  • Regular Rate: $35
  • Day of Rate: $40

Why is your participation so important?

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