Calling all Dorchester Paws supporters!

Here’s your chance to work out and log your miles for a great cause! Grab your pet or a loved one, and let’s get going!

In partnership with Miles for Meaning, Dorchester Paws is getting active this March and encouraging the community to log their miles to raise money and awareness for the animals that are in our care.

This is YOUR chance to make a difference by just walking, hiking, cycling, rolling, or running!

No matter where you are in the world, every mile logged from March 1-31 will get Dorchester Paws closer to winning a grand prize of $30,000! PLUS, any money you fundraise through this challenge, will go back to Dorchester Paws 100%!
