Our first Paw Prints 5K was last April on the same day as our annual Barb Feldstein Memorial Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest at the Burlington County Animal Shelter. It was so successful and everyone had so much fun that we decided to make the race a stand-alone event on the last Saturday in September at a new venue, beautiful Smithville Park in Eastampton. And since we didn't want to wait more than a year to have another race, we're going to have two in 2017! The next Paw Prints 5K is Saturday, Sept. 30.
