Liz Taylor wants us all to join Carleton Place Terrace in supporting the fifth annual Walk your Paws for LAWS on September 24, 2016.

“This is always the largest fundraiser of our year,” said Liz Taylor, a volunteer and organizer of the WALK & on the Board of Directors for LAWS. “With over 120 cats and kittens at the shelter right now, not to mention the dogs, it is definitely a time of need!” 

Registration for the walk begins at 10 a.m. at the Carleton Place Arena, 75 Neelin Street. Stay after the walk for a BBQ, face painting, and live music from local artists, like the Burnside Sisters & Jimmy Tritone, plus a microchip clinic & nail trimming.

Who’s a good owner?! YOU ARE!
Don’t forget to register for this event and show some love by raising money! If you don’t have a dog, LAWS invites you to walk your own paws anyways!

The registration pledge form and more information can be found at or on the LAWS Facebook page
