About Paws4ever

All proceeds from the event benefit Paws4ever, which has been serving the Triangle and beyond for more than 50 years.

We provide shelter and adoption services for homeless animals, affordable dog training classes for the community, and a Legacy Care program for pets whose owners can no longer care for them.

Paws4ever is dedicated to creating and growing lifetime relationships between pets and people through adoption, training, education & care.

Help Animals Like Tegan & Get PRIZES!

Thanks to donors and fundraisers like you, Tegan was rescued last February. She has a painful knee condition that requires ongoing treatment, and Paw4ever was able to commit to providing her care for as long as it took to find her a home because people like you have been generous. Tegan was recently adopted!

When you register for PawsFest, you will be given a personal fundraising page. Share the page with all of your friends, family, and co-workers and tell them why you support Paws4ever. They can donate easily through your page, and you can get great PRIZES when you raise money for animals like Tegan!

Raise $35: Get an embroidered Paws4ever hat!
Raise $100: Get a Paws4ever embroidered hat AND a Paws4ever Sweatshirt!

*Registration fees do not count towards personal fundraising totals, but you may donate on your own page!
