Since the first walk in 1992, PAWSwalk has helped PAWS give thousands of animals in need that second chance at a happy, healthy life.</p><p>Everyone is welcome! You don’t have to have a dog to take part, but if you do they’re more than welcome to join us—in fact, we’d be disappointed if they didn’t. Register individually or as part of a team. Even if you live far away and can't join us in person, you can still virtually walk with us. Registration, which includes an official PAWSwalk t-shirt and bandanna, is $25 per adult and $15 for children 12 and under.** Please note that "walk-up" registrations (the day of August 26th) will be increased to $35 per adult (registration for children 12 and under will remain at $15).</p><p>**If you are joining us virtually, and would like your t-shirt and bandanna mailed to you, a shipping cost of $6 will be added to your registration fee.</p><p><strong>5K RUN | 9:45 A.M.   5K WALK | 10:30 A.M.</strong></p><p><a href="https://www.paws.org/index.php/support/events/pawswalk/pawswalk-registration/">Register Now!</a></p> Wed, 03 May 2017 17:55:27 -0500 https://www.paws.org/index.php/support/events/pawswalk/?date=2017-08-26 Homeschool Kids Who Care - Wednesday PM https://www.paws.org/index.php/kids/kids-events/homeschoolers-kidswhocare-wed/?date=2017-08-30 <p>Our signature PAWS program is a six week, once a week, the interdisciplinary program including opportunities for reading, journaling, critical thinking and problem solving and is designed to meet Washington State science standards.
