Join us for our 4th annual 5k run/walk in downtown Jackson at Horace Blackman Park.  The park is located at the corner of W Michigan Ave. and S. Jackson St. in Jackson, MI. Paws in the Park is one of Cascades Humane Society’s largest fundraisers of the year! All donations and registration fees go straight to the animals in our care. We have great incentives this year, so make sure to ask your families and friends to donate so you can get great prizes! Paws in the Park 2022 will be on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 and features a beautiful 5k run/walk through downtown Jackson.  Leashed dogs are welcome to attend and participate in the event.  Prefer a short distance or a casual troll?  Join us for our 1 Mile Woof Walk!  Each 5k participant will receive a t-shirt and finisher medal.  Each Woof Walk participant will receive a t-shirt. T-shirts are guaranteed with registrations by May 27th!  Supplies are available as they last after that date.
