12th Annual Baypath Humane Paws & Claws 5k - DCR Hopkinton State Park. October 17th, 2021

Annual Paws & Claws 5k

Our annual Fall favorite brings out over 400 two- and four–legged participants in addition to so many volunteers. This beautiful course runs through Hopkinton State Park during peak foliage season.

We have a fun Paws & Claws Village, which features local vendors and businesses. We also foster teambuilding among our wonderful walkers and runners through social media and crowdrising endeavors.

The funds raised each year via this critical event ensures we can meet the day to day needs of the animals in our care.
