Party for the Paws

Location: Frontier Park, Erie PA
Party for the Paws


Our biggest fundraiser of the year is expanding and moving to Frontier Park!

Mark your calendars – you won’t want to miss Party for The Paws, a dog walk and fall festival to benefit Because You Care on Saturday, Sept. 30, 1-4 p.m.

This dog- and family-friendly event will include:

  • a dog walk
  • food trucks (Happy Camper Snack Shack, Waffle Miracle, and Sundae vegan ice cream)
  • a beer garden with one free beer with paid admission for those over 21
  • live music with sets by Jess Royer and Roy Hollis
  • balloon sculptures by Magic Steve
  • caricatures by Bryan Toy
  • Sammy Stone from Happi 92.1
  • activities for kids and dogs
  • local vendors selling homemade goods and crafts
  • our annual Franklin Fund raffle with 15 huge baskets worth over $100 each
  • and much more!

This is a fundraiser, so participants who raise money for our animal rescue efforts will be entered into drawings for cool prizes from local businesses. The money you raise helps support our network of foster homes, provides veterinary care, including spaying and neutering, and maintains our adoption center, a temporary place for animals to live while they await their forever homes.

Watch this space and our Facebook page for instructions on how to register and start raising money coming soon!
