Fundraise Today!

Every step on October 17th helps us provide animal welfare services for pets and people through rescue, spay/neuter, pet retention, and advocacy programs in order to create a safety net for companion animals and community cats. You can help even more through fundraising for the SMAWL Rescue Fun Run and Trail Walk before the event. You can fundraise as part of a team or as an individual. The top fundraising teams and individuals will win prizes!

Teams need to have a Team Name. So, gather a group of animal loving friends and start brainstorming and fundraising for our local homeless animals. All forms and funds are due by 9:00 AM on October 17 at the beginning of the fun run and trail walk.
