The fun starts early with vendor booths, dog agility, contests and more all set to go from 8am. There'll also be a variety of delicious food on offer, and a beer and mimosa garden waiting for you at the finish line.

You don't even have to walk to be part of PAWSwalk! With pet-friendly shopping, adoptable animals, and an interactive Kids Zone offering a whole host of activities, you can come along and simply soak up the atmosphere at this family friendly event.

With over 600 walkers already registered it's going to be a busy morning so if you have signed up to walk, please arrive early to check in!

In addition to being a fun walk in the park, the funds raised at PAWSwalk will help more than 7,000 animals at PAWS over the coming year. From tiny, three-week-old kittens who need round-the-clock care to orphaned Harbor Seal pups who can't survive in the wild without their mothers, these are the lives we work to save. We could not do this work without our compassionate supporters.

Join us in saving lives, and have a fun time doing it!
