Paws 4 A Cure Walk Supports Care for Animals in Need

The sixth annual Paws 4 A Cure walk takes place at 1 p.m., May 19, at Lake Quannapowitt, in Wakefield. The event raises money for veterinary hospitals throughout the United States to help offset the cost of treatment for animals whose owners cannot afford it without some financial assistance.

“Our mission is to help our furry friends and their human companions,” says President Keri Goldman. “We hope lots of people will join us for an afternoon of tail waggin’, treats and belly rubs.”

The afternoon event features vendors, animal service and rescue groups, an eco-friendly memorial balloon release, and a three-mile walk around Lake Quannapowitt. Participants can register online to create a walk team, a fundraising page and pre-order an event T-shirt.

“Anyone who is unable to join us for the walk can still make a tax deductible donation,” says Goldman. “Donations are extremely important, as so many families around the United States are in need of Paws 4 A Cure’s assistance to help their furry family members. Every dollar really does help.”

Cost: $30 registration fee. Location: Lake Quannapowitt gazebo, Main and Church sts, Wakefield. For more information, email or visit
