Dogs and their owners run in last year’s Paws for a Cause at Veterans Park.
The Animal League of Birmingham will host the fourth annual Paws for the Cause 5K run and 1-mile Fun Run/Pet Walk on September 15 at Veteran’s Park on Valleydale Road.The organization raises funds through events like Paws for a Cause to improve the quality of life for animals in our area who are in need.
Last year, the event raised $9,000 for the Shelby County Humane Society, and the league is looking forward to supporting the society with more funds raised from this year’s run/walk.
The 5K begins at 8:30 a.m. and the Fun Run/Pet Walk at 9:45 a.m. Late registration and packet pick-up will run 7-8:15 a.m. for the 5K and 8:45-9:30 a.m. for the Fun Run/Pet Walk.
Entry fees after September 1 are $35 for the 5K or $30 for the Fun Run/Pet Walk.
