The Humane Society Naples and Gulf Coast Runners invite all runners and their dogs to lace up their shoes for the 11th Annual Run for the Paws 5K walk/run fundraiser to be held at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 28 at the Naples Municipal Airport.

Last year's race drew runners from across Florida and the United States, and there were even several runners from outside the U.S. A total of 946 registrants – and 180 dogs in tow – raised over $17,000 for the orphaned pets at The Humane Society Naples.

This is absolutely one of the BEST charitable 5K's around. If you aren't pre-registered, you can do so starting at 7:00 a.m. at the Civil Air Patrol Building at Naples Airport. Race starts promptly at 8:00 a.m.

The race follows a unique scenic route around Naples Municipal Airport. Shirts are only guaranteed to the first 500 registered. Pre-race packet pick-up on Friday 1/29 at the Humane Society Naples 10am-4pm. Pets are welcome to walk or run! Dogs are allowed to participate with their guardians, but must be up to date with their vaccinations, be able to complete the distance of the event, and must be on a non-retractable leash at all times. The retractable leashes are not permitted due to tripping concerns that we have experienced in previous years. Cats in strollers are allowed! Please arrive early to allow yourself time to park, register, pick up your timing chip, and get to the start line. Day-of registration WILL CLOSE AT 7:45 a.m. TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS TIME TO GET THEIR CHIP AND GET TO THE START. If you arrive after 7:45, there is no guarantee that you will be timed and included in the event results!

We encourage participants to bring items for the pets at the Humane Society Naples, items that they are always in need of are cat litter, laundry detergent, bath towels, paper towels, hand sanitizer, canned dog food, and dryer fabric softener sheets.
Admission: $25 adults
