Paws in the Park

Special Events

Saturday, September 24th

Join us on September 24 at Beaver Island State Park for the SPCA Serving Erie County’s 23rd annual Paws in the Park Walk presented by Keller Technology Corporation! Spend some quality time with your dog and enjoy a scenic two-mile walk. Don’t own a dog? No worries! Paws in the Park is for all animal lovers. The day includes breakfast compliments of Dunkin’ Donuts, an Anderson’s lunch, pet-related vendors and exhibitors, contests and demonstrations, an agility course, and more!

Every dollar raised through Paws in the Park will help care for animals in need, from orphaned kittens to a dog that has been hit by a car to a hawk with a broken wing. The SPCA cares for nearly 12,000 homeless pets and wildlife annually, animals that are counting on us to be their voice. So please register today, form a team, collect donations, and make a difference. Together we can be champions for the animals!
