About PawsFest

For more than a decade, Paws4ever's annual festival and fundraising walk has been an institution in the local pet-loving community! PawsFest is an opportunity to celebrate the pets that enrich our lives while joining together as a community to raise money for animals in need. 

Event Features:

  • A walk around the beautiful Southern Village neighborhood as a celebration and show of our support for pets
  • A 50/50 raffle! Tickets are $10 and the winner receives half of all ticket sales
  • A silent auction with great prizes like Disney tickets
  • A bounce house and other inflatables
  • Fun vendors
  • An "Ask the Trainer" booth for all your dog-training questions
  • Music, lawn games, a photobooth, and more!

Your participation in this fun, family-friendly (and dog-friendly) event saves lives. Paws4ever relies on people like you as we rescue homeless cats and dogs from crowded county shelters and care for them as long as it takes to find homes.

In addition to attending the walk and festival, we encourage you to create a fundraising page during the registration process. This will allow you to easily ask your family, friends, and co-workers to join you in saving lives! 

About Paws4ever

For more than 50 years, Paws4ever has been saving lives and completing families in our community. Located on a beautiful 50-acre sanctuary in rural Orange County, Paws4ever offers an integrated approach to animal welfare by operating an animal rescue and adoption center as well as a dog training facility. We make a unique life-long commitment to our animals and provide programs and resources to support pet owners through every stage of their relationship.

Your participation in PawsFest will allow us to care for animals like Joli and Tuff for as long as it takes to find their forever homes!
