About This Activity

Join Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine and the pet-loving community of Colorado Springs for a tail-wagging good time at our Paws for the Cause 5K and festival benefiting the Treasured Paws Fund! Bring your friends and family (including your canine companion) down to the Veterinary Specialty Center where we'll run, walk, or dash along the beautiful Pikes Peak Greenway trail. We’ll return for an awards ceremony, fun, food, and drinks!

We will have live demonstrations, music from DJ Ron Perry, food trucks, a petting zoo, bounce house, and vendors all related to the furry family members!

What is the Treasured Paws Fund?

All proceeds from this event benefit the Treasured Paws Fund, a non-profit* organization providing partial financial assistance for advanced care from board certified veterinary specialists to Colorado residents in order to promote the human-animal bond.

*The Treasured Paws Fund is in the process of obtaining 501 (c) (3) status through the IRS.
