Description

4PAWS Pawathon is back! The successful and fun-filled annual friendly charity run with the dogs is now in its 4th edition. 

4PAWS is proud to present another fantastic opportunity for dog owners and their furry kids to mingle with fellow pet loving families while doing good deed!  

This year 4PAWS Pawathon theme is “Be a Responsible Pet Owner, Don’t Abandon”. We would like to raise the public awareness that Pets are lifetime commitment; owners have the responsibility to take care of their pets.  A lack of commitment may lead to pet abandonment. Pls treat pets as part of your family.
