About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Pawz for a Cause 5k/Fun Run/Pet Costume Contest is an event organized by Girl Scout Troop 5632.

This event benefits the purchase of items to help needy animals and pets of the community through the Fauquier SPCA. And where else would we have this but at their facility!  Pets are welcome to attend and participate as long as they are leashed and are up to date on all their vaccinations.


Last year we were all amazed of the donations received for the SPCA.  This year, let's see if we can increase the donations!  We encourage ALL participants and spectators to bring an item to donate to the SPCA!!

Also be sure to come out to meet "Mozey Moo"!  Our special friend that participated with us last year with a couple of her farm friends!

All human runners pre-registered will receive a Pawz for a Cause T-shirt. Pre-registration deadline is September 30, 2016. All pet runners will receive a special treat as well, while supplies last.

The pet costume contest is a fun way to see your pets and animals dressed up for the Halloween season. There will be three different categories; Cutest Costume, Funniest Costume, and Most Creative Costume. Contest will be held after 5K while waiting on results. Prizes to be revealed the day of the race.

(Human participants can also wear costumes too, not just for pets!)
