Welcome to CARA’s House “PAWS for a CAUSE” event page! The primary purpose of “PAWS for a CAUSE” 1.5 mile Walk/Run is to support CARA’s House in their time of need after their animal shelter flooded. We also want to celebrate our love for animals and have fun! The registration fee is $20 per person with children ten and under free with a paid adult; all profits will be going directly to CARA’s House. (Be sure to take advantage of early bird registration!) Dogs are warmly welcomed as long as the dogs are older than 12 weeks, have a rabies certificate, are not in heat, and are not aggressive. Please note, no refunds are available.
Arrival starts at 1:30 pm with the walk/run beginning at 2:30 pm. There will be music, vendors, and homemade baked goodies for sale for both our doggie friends and their human people. Dogs and their humans are welcome to dress themselves up in the Christmas spirit! We’ll have a costume contest for the dogs with costume categories for Most Original, Most Unusual, Best Small Dog, and Best Big Dog. The walk/run will happen rain or shine with backup plans in place in the event of rain. So, please come out, have fun, and help support CARA’s House!
CARA's House is an animal shelter derived from a public-private partnership between Companion Animal Rescue of Ascension (CARA), a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, and the Parish of Ascension working to serve lost and abandoned animals in our community.
