Thank you to all of our sponsors.

To Whom It May Concern,


We are asking for your support for the 2nd Annual Needy Paws 5K walk/run. Walk the Cause for Needy Paws will be held in May 6th, 2017. Our First 5K in April 2016, we had over 400 participants and raised more than $16,000!


Our goal is to continue bringing community members together and raise money to allow us to continue our efforts to rescue dogs in need in St. Louis and the surrounding areas. Needy Paws Rescue is a non-profit 501c3, all volunteer rescue devoted to saving animals in need, whose lives are in danger at high kill animal shelters and animal control, those who are strays, have been abandoned or whose family has faced an extreme emergency, regardless of their size or breed. We are a 100% foster-based group and all pets stay in approved foster homes. We are dedicated to finding the best forever homes to ensure the pets will have a safe and loving home for many years. To find out more about us, visit us online at www.needypaws.org.
