Each year, Portsmouth Humane Society provides shelter, food, medical care, and love to over 1,800 animals in need. We love this work, but we can't do it alone. Supporters like you make it possible for us to save hundreds of lives through our shelter program when you volunteer, donate, share our posts, or attend our events. Portsmouth Humane Society's 12th Annual Cause for Paws 5K Run & 1-Mile Walk is the biggest event of the year! The races will take your on a winding tour of downtown Portsmouth just as the spring buds start to bloom. The best part? You can bring your canine companion along for the ride! Race registration includes a Cause for Paws T-Shirt, Finisher Medal, Snack, and Beer Ticket. Be sure to stick around after the race for live music, animal demonstrations, adoptable critters, and a Vendor Fair! Proceeds from the races benefit the lifesaving mission of Portsmouth Humane Society.
