Walk Your Paws slated for Saturday at Lewisburg park

Local canines will get to strut their stuff as Walk Your Paws takes place at Hollowell Park, Lewisburg, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Doggy games and contests will be plentiful with a Best Fall Costume Contest and Walk Your Paws, Laundry Relay, Bucket Relay, Waggiest Tail, the Long/Short Tail contest, Best Trick and more. There will be an Agility Course set up by Dog Training by Janice to try your dog’s skills.

There will also be door prizes and giveaways throughout the day.

Entry is $15 per family with one pet. Additional pets in the same family are $5 each.

Everyone entering the event will receive a free T-shirt, as well as a goodie bag and bandana for their pet.

If you don’t have a pet or need someone to walk your pet, your family can either Sponsor a Pet for the event from one of our local animal shelters or rescue groups, or sponsor a walker to walk your pet at the event for a $5 donation to the shelter of your choice. Each shelter dog will be able to spend time with a family and hopefully find a home.

All proceeds from this event will benefit homeless pets from NWAL Herding Dog Rescue, Greenbrier Humane Society, Humane Society of Pocahontas County, & ACWP-Summers Humane Society.

There will also be pictures and guest speakers.

Walk Your Paws sponsors include: ProPlan Rally to Rescue; local vets, Fairlea Animal Hospital, Greenbrier Veterinary Clinic, Seneca Trail Animal Clinic, Dr. Meg Taylor as well as other vendors.

Event Rules:

1. Pets must wear an ID and rabies tag and must be kept on a 6-foot leash and under control at all times.

2. Pets in heat, less than 4 months of age, or exhibiting overly aggressive behavior will not be allowed at the park.
