Walk 4 Paws 2019

10/5/2019, 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Chautauqua Institution
Contact: Brian Papalia

Save the date for the 15th annual Walk 4 Paws, presented by Happy Hounds Hotel.  This is the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event combines a family friendly 1.5-mile walk through Chautauqua Institution with charitable giving to help provide care for all the animals awaiting adoption at the shelter.

 

The annual Walk 4 Paws event takes place on Saturday, October 5th at the Market Gate of Chautauqua Institution. Check-in begins at 9 a.m., with the official walk starting at 10:15 a.m. Again this year, at 10 a.m., CCHS will feature a runway for pets and their owners to show off their finest costumes and/or tricks. This is where the costume contest judging will take place. Awards and complimentary refreshments will follow at the conclusion of the walk.

 

Unlike most charity walks or 5K events, community members walk alongside their favorite pets and get personal sponsors to help raise money for the shelter. As individual walkers’ fundraising totals go up, they have the opportunity to earn bigger incentive prizes. The first incentive level gets a commemorative Walk 4 Paws t-shirt and higher incentive levels can earn bicycles, jewelry, electronics and more.

 

Walkers can also form teams for the event. Interested Team Leaders are encouraged to recruit more people to join their team. The top three teams with the highest combined fundraising total are awarded trophies as well as the top three individuals. Local businesses are encouraged to create teams of walkers for promotional opportunities.00

 

Dogs aren’t the only animals that can participate in the walk. Over the years, cats, ferrets and even a horse have participated in the event. The event is meant to raise awareness and funds for all animals that enter the humane society facilities.

 

Happy Hounds Hotel is the presenting sponsors of this year’s walk.  Media support is provided by the Media One Radio Group (SE-93, 101.9 WHUG, 103.1 the Fox, Kiss 106.9, WJTN 1240 & 101.3, and 1340 WKSN).
