By contributor,

Registration is now open for Baypath Humane Society’s 14th Annual Paws & Claws 5k! Registration for the 14th Annual Paws & Claws 5k presented by VCA Animal Hospitals is officially open! This year’s event takes place on Sunday, October 15th at the beautiful Hopkinton State Park. Baypath is thrilled that the community will be able to come together again for this major event. The Baypath Paws & Claws 5K is one of Baypath’s largest events each year and is responsible for helping the organization meet their mission of caring for over 1000 cats and dogs each year.

The event proceeds will support Baypath Humane Society’s mission to provide shelter, care, humane treatment, and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals. Baypath supporters, volunteers, and attendees come together once a year for a night of fun to raise critical funds to support the general operations of our shelter. Those funds are necessary to help deliver top-notch adoption services, medical and behavioral care, and community education.
