The Paw Crawl is going virtual!!!
Helping Paws has decided to make this year’s Paw Crawl virtual.
Our registration numbers are very low and we feel this is the best decision.
In hopes to still be able to raise money for the animals, we have lowered the registration fee to $25, which will include an awesome event shirt and a raffle ticket to win one of our amazing gift baskets.
Event shirts will be available for pick up at the shelter on Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22 from 12-4.
There are three additional ways to get entries into the raffle.
During event time:
1. Post a picture to the Helping Paws Facebook having a cocktail.
2. Post a picture wearing the event shirt.
3. Post a picture at one of the participating bars.
You can have a gathering at home with family and friends or go out to one of the participating bars that are huge supporters of Helping Paws.

Participating Bars: 

Public House
Pour House
Liquid Blues
Benton Street Tap
The Cabin
D.C. Cobb’s

NOTE: This event is for adults who are 21 or older.
