Where is the event?
Everywhere! The Paws for a Cause in-person event will be held on the recreational trail next to Wet-Nose Rescue, 1331 Hawkeye Ave. SW, Le Mars, IA (next to the airport), on August 26th at 8:30 am. The walk and run will begin and end at Wet-Nose Rescue. Check-in begins at 8:00 am. Not in our neck of the woods? No problem! Run virtually from wherever you are!

How does a virtual run work?
Due to the popularity of last year's virtual run, we are offering this as a participation option again for 2023. This means you'll have ten days to go for your run or doggie dash in your own location any time between August 16th and 26th, 2023. The first 100 registrants will get t-shirts and swag bags and those will be shipped to you before the start date so you can wear your shirt out on your run. After signing up, you'll also get a link to the event's Facebook group where you can post pics of you on your run or with your four-legged friends on your doggie dash.

What is a doggie dash?
The one-mile doggie dash is an opportunity to get out and do something healthy with your four-legged friend! No need to dash, you can also stroll.

Can I walk the one mile without a dog?

Can my dog and I do the 5K?

Will there be awards and prizes?
Because this a fun run to raise money for a good cause, there won’t be medals or other awards. But if you sign up early, we have fun t-shirts and the coolest doggie swag bags ever.

What is Wet-Nose Rescue?
In 2023 our beneficiary is Wet-Nose Rescue, a volunteer-powered nonprofit based in Le Mars IA. Wet-Nose Rescue is dedicated to rescuing surrendered, homeless, neglected, and abandoned animals and finding them loving forever homes.

Does my dog need to be on a leash?
Yes. For the safety of the dogs and participants we ask that all dogs remain on a leash.
