We’re excited to welcome the whole community to an in-person signature KHS event: Big Paws. This will be the 23rd annual Big Paws and the first in-person Big Paws in 2 years – one that will be physically distanced, but will also mark the start of better times and celebrate the community that has been carrying us through the pandemic.
Big Paws in City Park participants will go on a guided walk with their four-legged friend through the park, collecting pledges from friends and family ahead of time to support KHS. You can register now, start collecting pledge money, and send us pictures and videos of you and your pup getting ready for the big day.
Big Paws in City Park won’t just bring together poodles, retrievers, chihuahuas, and bulldogs, but games, fundraising, food, shopping, and finally, safe in-person connection too. Local businesses and artisans will be there selling their products, along with music, interactive activities for you and your pup, media partners, and again, lots of dogs.
All participants are expected to maintain physical distancing, and wear a mask when distancing is not possible.
So grab your sunscreen, mask, and of course your furry friend, and join us on Saturday September 25th in City Park to raise funds for animal welfare. All money raised goes towards life-saving surgeries, veterinary care, medications, pet ownership education, and everything else we need to provide a safe haven to our community’s animals.
We’ll see you, in real life, soon!
