Helping Paws is pleased to announce the 13th Annual Panting for Paws 5K and 1 Mile Family Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, October 5th from 7a.m. until 11a.m. at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake.
This is an extra special year for Helping Paws, as 2019 marks our 50th anniversary as the first no-kill animal shelter in McHenry County. In these past 50 years, Helping Paws has rescued thousands of animals, giving them a second chance at forever by placing them in loving homes. Therefore, our theme for the year is “Celebrating 50 Years of Second Chances,” and we hope you will help us launch our events by participating in Panting for Paws!
