15th Annual Run for the Paws

The 15th Annual Run for the Paws took place on Saturday, January 30, 2021. In compliance with CDC guidelines, this year’s event limited in-person participation. A virtual component was added which allowed runners and walkers to take part in the event from the comfort of their own neighborhood. Over 70 participants signed up for the virtual option.

In it’s 15th year, the Run for the Paws provides our community with a healthy and fun event which helps raise money towards the life-saving work Humane Society Naples provides to homeless animals in and beyond our community. Thank you to our participants, sponsors and volunteers for all of your support!
