Paws for Celebration to benefit the Animal Rescue League on Cape Cod

All are invited to the Animal Rescue League’s second annual “Paws for Celebration” fundraiser on Sunday, May 6 from 12-4 PM at Nauset Regional Middle School in Orleans.  The event is presented by Nauset Pet Services.


People and their pooches are invited to participate in a pledge walk through downtown Orleans and in various pet-related activities, entertainment and contests on the lawn in front of the middle school.  The inaugural event held last summer at Drummer Boy Park attracted over 1500 attendees and raised more than $25,000 for the shelter.
The .8 mile pledge walk will make a loop from Nauset Middle School through beautiful downtown Orleans and back to the school. Walkers are encouraged to register online with a $20 donation and to collect pledges from friends and family. The online fundraising website makes it easy to register, set up your own personal fundraising page, form teams, and collect donations online! Visit to register today.  All who register by April 30 will receive a free Animal Rescue League tote bag filled with goodies.
Additionally, prizes will be awarded to walkers who raise the following amounts: $500 (free Animal Rescue League hat), $750 (free Animal Rescue League t-shirt), $1000 (free Animal Rescue League sweatshirt) and $1500 (free photo session with Cold Nose Photo). The top overall adult fundraiser will receive a year’s supply of free dog food! Other prizes (to be announced soon) will be awarded to the top child fundraiser and top team fundraiser.
In addition to the walk, there will be activities taking place on the front lawn of the middle school throughout the day.  Highlights include contests (dog/owner look-a-like, best dressed, longest tongue, waggiest tail, best trick, and more), a Frisbee dog performance, a police K9 unit demonstration, shopping opportunities with pet retailers and vendors, raffle prizes, face painting, a photo “kissing booth” for you and your pooch, a caricature artist doing caricatures of people and/or dogs,  paw print ornament making, Animal Rescue League gear for sale, tag making (if your dog needs a new ID, get one here!), a DJ playing music, food, and free giveaways (including Frisbees while supplies last).
Dan & Stephanie from WCOD and Joe Rossetti and John Taylor from Cool 102 will be on hand to emcee the festivities.

Paws for Celebration is the signature annual fundraising event for the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Brewster branch which took in approximately 1200 animals (domestic and wildlife) in 2011. The shelter relies entirely on individual donations and does not receive any federal funding.

The event is generously supported by the following sponsors -- Nauset Pet Services, Agway of Cape Cod, Cape Animal Referral and Emergency Center, Cape Cod Underdogs, Cape Rental World, Cold Nose Photo, Eventful Connections, Hammerhead Creatives, Howl-A-Day-Inn Doggy Daycare, Merrick Pet Services, Nauset Disposal, Nutura, The Animal Hospital of Orleans, The Brewster Book Store, The Cape Cod Dog, WCOD, Cool 102 and Wicked Local Cape Cod.
