On Saturday, August 24th, you can help support the Weld County Humane Society via Paws and Sneakers.

What is Paws and Sneakers, you might ask. It is a 5K walk / run event benefiting the Weld County Human Society, which serves over 5,000 animals yearly.

The walk starts at 9 a.m. at the Twin Rivers Park in Greeley. Click here for a map. Registration costs $25 if you register early, and $30 if you register on the 24th. The registration money gets you a t-shirt as well. Don't forget to enjoy the post-run festivities as well.

You don't need a dog to partake in the run. Actually, in a smart move - and if you decide to not bring your dog, or you don't own one - you can choose to walk one of the shelter dogs and give it some much needed love.

If you don't want to run, you can still donate on their website. You can also register online to save yourself five bucks.
