Saturday, May 6 Paws on Palafox

Plaza de Luna Park

South End of Palafox Street

May 6, 2017 is the date for this year's 3rd Annual Paws on Palafox 3 K dog walk. As a walker, the course allows you to take in the beauty of Pensacola. The walk starts at 9 a.m.

Please be aware that we can not guarantee tee shirts and bandana's being available.  The number of last minute registrations has far exceeded expectations. We at the Humane Society greatly appreciate the support and hope that participants understand this issue.

Be one of the first 200 to register and you will receive a pair of cool sunglasses.  Whatever theme you decide to use for the walk, the sun glasses are the perfect accessory.  

The event serves as the primary fund raiser of the year for Pensacola Humane Society's Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic.  The Clinic has performed over 10,000 surgeries in the year and a half since its opening and finished 2016 with over 6,000 surgeries.  

You start out near Pensacola Bay in Plaza de Luna Park at the South end of Palafox Street. The course includes the historic district and our vibrant downtown business district and concludes back in Plaza de Luna Park.  

All registrations at $25 include a bandana and tee shirt. Registration for children 6 to 12 is $10 and includes a tee shirt.  Those 5 and under are free.

Please note that the Pensacola Humane Society can not guarantee shirt sizes for last minute registrants. Your understanding of this timing issue is appreciated.

When registering, the first option offered will be to walk individually and help us raise money.  The second option will be to walk and join a Pack or Team to raise funds for the Humane Society.  These options allow you to create your own fund raising page to share with your family and friends.

The next option will be to walk in the event and this category includes a tee shirt and bandana for the $25 registration fee.  Folks that register to walk can still help the Humane Society raise funds by asking people to donate online, but your effort will not be tracked and reported after the event.

This year's event is again presented by Mainstay Financial Group and through their generousity we have added a number of things to this year's event for your enjoyment.  This includes a band both prior to the walk and after.  

This event is truly the most dog friendly event in the community because we host the event with your dog in mind.  The walk is led by a LEAD car or PACE car provided by Bob Tyler Toyota, and the course includes water and treat stations for all participants, you and your animal(s).

The Pen Air Federal Credit Union Selfie Station is complete with dog costumes to increase your chance of getting that adorable pet photo during the event. You can share the good times on social media with the hashtag #Pawsonpalafox and #Pensacolahumane.

American Legion Post 240 has joined the team and is sponsoring this year's Paws on Palafox event. The organization is underwriting the awards for the event. 

The two packet pick-up events are scheduled for Tuesday, May 2 and Thursday, May 4 at Old Hickory Whiskey Bar from 5 - 8 p.m.  Plan to take part in these Yappie Hours.  They promise to be a lot of fun.

The first 200 walkers will receive a pair of sunglasses courtesy of Pure Pilates.  We also have added the John Hart Band for entertainment.  The group will entertain both, prior to the walk and immediately after the walk concludes.  The entertainment is provided via ADoor Properties.

Coffee and Krispy Kreme Donuts will be available prior to the start of the event.  As soon as more details are available we will share this with you.
