Event Details

We hope you will join us for our third annual Paws in the Park, Collier County Domestic Animal Services' walk for the animals on Saturday, December 17, 2016.  Animal lovers can bring their dogs and take the 2.1 mile stroll around the trail at the North Collier Regional Park to help us raise funds that benefit the Collier County Domestic Animal Services Trust Fund.  This fund is used to provide emergency veterinary care, food, training, and enrichment toys for the animals in our care.

Domestic Animal Services (DAS) cares for over 6,000 animals each year and we couldn't do it without community support.  Please join us by participating; your registration and donations will help make a difference in the lives of the animals at DAS.

The DAS Trust Fund provides the following:

  • Medical care for ill and injured animals that arrive at our shelter.
  • Emergency and on-going care for animals who are victims of animal neglect or abuse.  Animal Control Officers respond to thousands of calls every year from concerned citizens reporting cases of abuse or neglect.
  • Enrichment toys and training for animals that stay with DAS for extended periods of time while they wait for a home to call their own.  DAS currently has numerous animals available for adoption that have been at the shelter for over six months.
  • Food, vaccinations, medication, and sterilization.  Each animal that comes through our doors is provided age appropriate vaccines and medical care.
  • Human education to local schools and adult groups.  Our goal is to teach responsible pet ownership and bite prevention to people of all ages in our community.  Your support will help us improve our humane education programs.

Please help us by walking during Paws in the Park on Saturday, December 17th, 2016 at the North Collier Regional Park.  A pledge sheet is available if you are interested in helping DAS raise additional funds.  Please contact Kellie Carroll at (239) 252-6950 or if you would like more information or a pledge sheet.
