Join the Movement to Help Animals in Need | PAWSwalk: Exercise Your Heart for Animals presented by Amazon Pets
Make a difference for animals in need while getting active with PAWSwalk!
Starting on June 4th, participants can log the miles they walk on PAWSwalk.net to raise life-saving funds for animals. Thanks to a generous pledge from Veterinary Specialty Center of Seattle, every mile logged will result in a $1 donation (up to $20,000) to help cats, dogs and wild animals receive the care they need to go home and thrive – whether home is the family room or the forest.
You can join the movement to help animals in need. Grab your sneakers, hit the pavement, trails or gym, and let’s make a difference together.
Everyone is welcome! Whether you walk, run or stroll – Sign up for PAWSwalk today.

Since 1967, PAWS has united more than 130,000 cats and dogs with loving families, cared for more than 140,000 sick, injured and orphaned wild animals, and made the world a better place for countless others through outreach, education and advocacy.
