2015 Walk Your Paws

Saturday June 6, 2015 we will be moving and grooving our paws around the City Park! Come join us for this annual fun event!

Walk Your Paws is one the Humane Society of Parkersburg's biggest fundraiser.

Now what is it???? It is a super fun day when pet lovers get together for a common cause-to raise money for the shelter animals. The day is centered around our furry friends! After the registration (begins at 8:30) you can stroll around looking at our exhibitor tables of local businesses while getting ready for the big walk! At 10:00 we begin the walk around the park with all of our animals - what a fun sight to see!

Prizes and Awards:  After the walk, prizes are awarded for top fundraising, best dressed and pet tricks along with random door prize drawings. We have some plans for fun pet activites so stay tuned!

How can you contribute:  Below you will find our links to the registration forms/pledge forms. Take these forms with you wherever you go and ask people to donate for your walk - it is easy to raise money for our shelter as we have so many supporters!

  • Raise $25 and you will be entered for our door prizes.
  • Bring a bag of Purina Dog/Cat/Kitten or Puppy food and your name will be entered a second time for drawings!
  • Raise $50 and receive a tee shirt with our fun logo! Once you start asking for donations, you will find it is easy to hit these goals! 

 Awards will be given in the following categories:

  • Becky Vaughan Spirit Award for Top Fundraiser 
  • First Place 15 and younger 
  • Second Place 15 and younger 
  • First Place 16 and older 
  • Best Tricks
  • Best Dressed Pup

We plan to have some fun activities at our Walk this year for our participants!
