Description

Shelby Humane Society is the only open-admission animal shelter in Shelby County. We care for over 5,000 lost, homeless & unwanted pets each year. We rely on fundraisers such as Paws for the Cause to perform our life-saving mission.

Paws for the Cause is a certified 5k off-road cross-country race through the beautiful Veterans Park in Hoover. The course takes you on a path through the park around the lake and through tree-lined trails surrounding the park.

NEW: The Tail Waggin' Trek is a 1-mile "obstacle" course run for individuals or teams and fun for adults, kids & dogs! All obstacles are family-friendly and either silly fun animal-themed challenges suitable for all ages and those that can walk a mile.

Now more than ever, the shelter needs financial support to care for the hundreds of pets in their care and foster homes.  

Thank you for your support! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at bestfriends@shelbyhumane.org.
