About Paws In Motion Helping Paws 5K

A Community Event For Everyone! 

Helping Paws is thrilled to host our Paws In Motion 5K event and fundraiser on May 5, 2024!
Whether you prefer to wag, walk, roll, or run, there will be both long and short courses to choose from. Bring your friends and family! You can even form teams in advance to raise money for Helping Paws. Join us for the celebration, take a tour of our new facility, meet our assistance dogs, and get your Paws In Motion!

Tour? We moved to a bigger location!
Helping Paws just relocated to a larger space to accommodate our growing community. Thanks to strategic reserve funds, we've renovated an existing building, expanding our training space by 3,000 square feet!

While we're still unpacking, classes are already underway. We're excited to announce that we'll be hosting a grand opening celebration in conjunction with our Paws In Motion 5K event.

Assistance Dogs Change Lives!

Having an assistance dog empowers individuals with self-confidence, self-esteem, and a radiance that is wonderful to see. It means the gifts of dignity, independence, and peace of mind. Your donations and participate supports our mission!
