Paws Walk 2017



This spring, you can raise money for the New Hampshire SPCA doing anything you want!  Throw a bake sale to collect donations, agree to sky dive for reaching your fundraising goal, offer to pet sit in exchange for donations, or just invite everyone to support your Walk on June 4th.  Whatever you do to raise funds is up to you! 

Here’s how it works:  Register for Paws Walk, create a personal fundraising page to share with family and friends, and collect donations to help save the lives of over 2,500 animals that will turn to the NHSPCA in need this year.  Then bring your family, friends, and canine companion to the Walk on Sunday, June 4th to celebrate all that you’ve accomplished! 

Paws Walk will feature a 2-mile trail walk through Stratham Hill Park, fun activities, amazing doggie demonstrations, local vendors, and delicious food.  Last year’s walk was a huge success, with thousands of people and pets in attendance! 

This year we hope to raise $125,000, but we need you to make that happen!  If every Paws Walker shares their fundraising page with 10 people, who give $15 each, that’s $150!  That $150 covers basic medical care for one animal at the shelter and can make a world of difference in a homeless animal’s life.  Whether it’s enough money for a vaccination, food for a week, or shelter for a month, your support changes lives and provides second chances.
