About Paws for a Cause

Paws for a Cause is more than just a dog walk; the event connects local businesses with our supporters while promoting animal adoptions, a healthy lifestyle, and fun in the Iowa City community.

Paws for a Cause began in 2001 as Paws in the Park, a dog walk-a-thon to support the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center. It is now our largest fundraiser of the year, and the proceeds will be used to expand the animal care services at the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center. Bring the entire family, there is more than just a dog walk going on – we will have activities for the kids, all kinds of various vendors, raffles, entertainment and food trucks, and you can visit with the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center’s adoptable animals!

We want to thank our sponsors that ensure we have a fun, successful event each year.

Now is your chance to walk your dog to benefit other dogs!
