Our Mission

Saving Lives, 4 Paws at a time!

The Run4Paws 5K benefits Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue.  Magnificent Mutts & Meows is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all breed dog & cat rescue.  We save dogs & cats who are rescued from high kill animal shelters, are surrendered by their owners, or are found roaming the streets.  Once we rescue the animals, they are vet-checked, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heart-worm tested/treated, and microchipped before we find their loving fur-ever home.

T-Shirts and sizes are no longer guaranteed after Sept 19th. Extra shirts will be available on a first come first serve basis at the event.  Thank you for your understanding.
