Dog Orphans 22nd Annual Walk for Paws

Join us for our 22nd Annual Walk for Paws, a fun, family-friendly event at beautiful Riverbend Farm in Uxbridge, MA.  Great music, food, over 20 vendors and featuring our 3rd Annual Running of the Chihuahuas sponsored by Bob Antonitis.  A favorite from last year is back:  Shawn from "In the Dog House" will be providing Reiki treatments.  

Ask your friends and family to sponsor you by making a donation to Dog Orphans Humane Society. 

Prizes for the top fundraisers:  1st place-$500 American Express Gift Card, 2nd place-Furbo Dog Camera donated by Whippet Rescue and 3rd place-$100 PetSmart gift card donated by Sutton Animal Hospital.  Grand prize for the top fundraiser in the under 17 category is a Amazon Echo.

Participants who raise:  $150+ will receive a voucher for a free lunch; $175+ will receive a free lunch and a Walk for Paws T-shirt; 200+ will receive a free lunch, a Walk for Paws T-shirt and a free pet portrait by Phil Smith Photography (you must be present at the dog walk to redeem this prize).  REGISTER TODAY!

There is ample free parking at Riverbend Farm.

Feel free to bring your dog to the event!  All dogs must be leashed,  accompanied by an adult (no flex-leads, please) and have a current rabies vaccination.  Clean-up bags will be provided and must be disposed of properly.  Aggressive dogs, female dogs in season, and puppies under four months of age are best left at home.  Water stations will be available.  No dogs may be left unattended at any time.

If you want to get involved, but can't join us on May 3:  Let one of our many Dog Orphans members walk for you.  The donations you obtain from friends and family still allow you to be eligible for the prizes awarded to event fundraisers.
