This is our 10th annual event for runners and walkers of all ages who want to help the animals. Panting for Paws starts off with a 1 Mile Fun Run and then the 5K (just 3.1 miles) along a scenic, crushed limestone path at Lippold Park. This race is CARA certified. After you run or walk, grab some coffee or hot chocolate and snacks donated by local businesses, visit with some of our sponsors and vendors, and see some of our wonderful dogs available for adoption.
The Paws in the Park Walk & Pet Fest is our exciting family, pet-friendly event where you can bring your dog(s) and enjoy a day of fun at Emricson Park in Woodstock! Come out and enjoy a fun-filled day with many vendors, food, walk around a nature path, games and prizes, pet blessing, raffles, and more! You’ll also get a chance to meet a few of our shelter dogs that are available for adoption.
