Save the date for PAWS 4 A Cause

In this case, PAWS stands for the non-profit Public Animal Welfare Society of Ohio.

The society will hold its 5th Annual PAWS 4 a Cause: Find Your Forever Friend event from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 16, at the Cleveland Metroparks' South Chagrin Reservation Polo Grounds.

The family-friendly event is yet another attempt to find homes for Northeast Ohio's homeless animals. Dogs and cats from numerous local rescue organizations will be available for adoption.

The day will also feature:
• 1- or 2-mile walks around the park ($25 pre-registration fee/$30 day of)

• A Chinese raffle and Big Ticket raffle, featuring East side and West side dining and entertainment packages, each valued at more than $1,000

• Dog contests

• Food concessions

• Local craft and pet-related vendors

• Canine demonstrations
For complete information and online registration visit

Swing by the site. If you're considering a new companion, the "Adoptables" page will absolutely melt your heart.
