Event Details

As part of our 35th anniversary celebration, PAWS is proud to present the 1st Annual PAWS on the TRAIL 4K Fun Run/Walk through the Reading Town Forest, Reading, MA.

Join us for a fun morning that includes a 4K Trail Fun Run, 4K Trail Walk, and a FREE Kitty Kat Dash for kids under 10. The Trail Fun Run/Walk is open to runners, walkers, teams and families of all ages.

And, if you want to add to your fun, create a Team and invite your friends to join you!

All proceeds of this event will be used to ensure PAWS can cover the medical expenses and extra-care needs of our homeless animals.  Over the past couple of years, we have experienced greater-than-usual medical expenses for emergencies, diagnostics, surgeries other than the normal spay/neuter operations, and prescription foods and medicines for the animals in our care.  In addition, the requests for help with rehoming pets, caring for moms and kittens, and taking in stray or abandoned cats have been non-stop this year.

So, bring your family and friends and help us make a difference for more local animals!

Register now for what promises to be a fun-filled day on the trails!
