Because You Care Paws at the Park Annual Dog Walk | September 12th, 2021

McKean Community Park, McKean, PA

Save the date! Paws at the Park, a dog walk for animal rescue, is scheduled for Sunday, September 12, 2021, at McKean Community Park in McKean, PA. It will take place in conjunction with a special celebration of Because You Care’s 40th anniversary of animal rescue, with activities and treats for both people and dogs.

This will be a hybrid event that will allow walkers and non-walkers alike to raise money online via our fundraising platform before the in-person event.

Participants can then choose to join us for the fun at McKean Community Park on September 12 – with or without their canine companions – or to participate solely online.

More details and a link to sign up will be provided at a later date.

Stay tuned for more upcoming events, including demonstrations and competitions!

Sunday, December 20th, 2020 10 AM-11AM Pleasant Ridge Park Fairview, PA
This group is all about keeping our social distance. This walking group is for all types of dogs; the dog that is in need of space but also would enjoy the company of other dogs and for reactive dogs who are learning to stay calm around other dogs or for dogs that are social butterflies but need on-leash socialization. We offer more structured socialization opportunities where we can count on other dog owners to respect your space.
