Needy Paws Rescue

Click here to edit subtitle

The  2nd annual Walk the Cause for Needy Paws is the perfect event for both avid runners and those who prefer a casual stroll around the peaceful Creve Coeur Lake. Our event will consist of both a CHIP-timed 5K and an untimed 1 mile route. After the race, we welcome all participants and their families to join us in fun filled activities and check out available merchandise to purchase. Needy Paws Rescue is a small, volunteer-led, non-profit 501c3 agency, dedicated to saving lives of unwanted, neglected and abandoned dogs.  Needy Paws also provide vet care such as spay/neuter, immunizations, and microchipping, along with other more serious medical needs. Funds raised by this event will be used to continue our mission by covering the cost of caring for our dogs. NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES, PLEASE!

The event has been postponed because Creve Coeur Park is underwater from all the rain. We will publish here (and other places) when the event is rescheduled.
