All two-legged registered participants get a t-shirt, race bag with sponsor gifts, and one ticket for our raffle.  All four-legged registered participants will get a bandana, and because we always love to see our prior foster dogs and their families, all Paws for Life NC alumni dogs will also get an alumni medal.

Following our event tradition of years past, we will also be having a doggie Halloween costume contest, with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  So get your creative juices flowing!

Profits from the event will benefit the Paws For Life NC Animal Rescue in our goal to reduce the homeless pet population and give them safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes.

We look forward to seeing you on October 5th!
