Needy Paws Rescue

Join us for the third annual Walk the Cause for Needy Paws and help us save dogs in need! The event will consist of both a chip-timed 5K and an untimed 1 mile fun run/walk. Dogs are welcome to join their humans on the route. (No retractable leashes, please.) After the race, we welcome all participants to compete in the dog costume contest and visit with a variety of local vendors. 

The family-friendly event, hosted by the Needy Paws Rescue Young Professionals Board, will benefit hundreds of dogs in the St. Louis area. And, 100 percent of the proceeds from race registration will help us provide veterinary care including spay/neuter, immunizations, microchipping, and address other more serious medical needs.
