What is PAWS 4 A Cause?
This is our 13th Annual PAWS for A Cause and the event is our major fundraiser for the year. 

Additionally, our goal for this event each year is to find forever homes for all of the adoptable companion animals that are on site that day. Rescue groups from all over Northern Ohio bring their rescues in hopes of someone taking them home. 

You'll also find a wide variety of things to see and do including:
  • Carnival Games for Kids
  • Dog Walks
  • Dog Contests
  • Face Painting
  • Low Cost Vaccine Clinic
  • LIVE Music
  • Raffle Baskets worth over $1,000
  • Great Food
  • Gift Shops
  • Celebrity Guests
  • And much more!!!
Free Concert 
PAWS has arranged for a special Live Free Concert after this year's event. The local Cleveland group "On the Verge" will entertain the crowd with hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Stick around for the fun.
