      Paws & Feet 5k Race & Doggie Fun Day

      Paws & Feet 5k Race & Doggie Fun Day is back at Cooper River Park this year on May 11th and we hope to see you there! Paws & Feet is AWA’s largest fundraising event of the year.

      Festivities kick off with a timed 5k Race and the Smile Mile, followed by a day full of music, food, activities and games for the whole family to enjoy!

      Paws & Feet is presented by the Camden County Board of Freeholders.

      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 $300 raised saves the life of one shelter dog!

      After the 5k Race or Smile Mile, everyone is welcome to join us at Cooper River Park to enjoy a day of fun and a full line-up of dog-friendly events! Activities will include:

      AWA’s Barktini Bar
      Doggie Agility Course
      Doggie Kissing Booth
      Doggie Ice Cream Sundae Bar (ft. Dogster Ice Cream)
      Doggie Swim Party
      Facepainting (for humans, of course!)
      On-site Adoptions
      K9 Candyland
      Food Vendors
      Live DJ
      Basket Raffle
      … and so much more!

Registration fees are the same for those who are participating in the Smile Mile, but the Smile Mile is an untimed event!
