Delaware SPCA to host Run for the Paws on Saturday

In Dewey Beach on Saturday, the Delaware SPCA is hosting their seventh annual SPCA Run for the Paws.

The pet and family friendly event features the Lucy Crowe Memorial 5K run, along with a 1 mile dog walk. Race registration is $25 and begins at 7:00 AM at the Starboard Restaurant, with the run starting at 8:00 AM sharp on Dagsworthy Street, rain or shine.

100 percent of all proceeds from the event will benefit the shelter, as Event Coordinator Cheryl Crowe explains, “A lot of folks don’t realize that, um, the Delaware SPCA consists of two shelters, in Stanton and in Georgetown, and those are not state funded agencies. So we do everything we can all year long, to raise as much money as possible to benefit our shelter animals.”

For more information on the event, and how you can donate without running, visit Delaware SPCA.org or the Seashore Striders page.
