Panther Pups and Puddles 2019 Walk-a-thon

Be part of the second annual Panther Pups & Puddles 5K walk for RAPS! January 12th, Rain or Shine!


Walkers will enjoy a leisurely five-kilometre stroll, starting and ending at the RAPS City Animal Shelter, located at 12071 No. 5 Road.

Pre-register to walk or donate to the walk online at the top of this page! Last-minute walkers may register at the starting point between 11 am & 12 noon.

Refreshments will be available at the RAPS City of Richmond Animal Shelter before and after the walk.

This dog-and family-friendly walk is initiated by the athletes, coaches and owners of Panther Cheer Athletics Junior Generals – Richmond’s premium All-Star Cheerleading club.

ALL animal lovers and Regional Animal Protection Society supporters are welcome to join our Panther Cheer friends to raise funds and awareness to benefit the furry companion animals at the RAPS City of Richmond Animal Shelter and RAPS Cat Sanctuary.

All dogs joining the walk must be up-to-date on vaccinations, walk on leashes and be friendly toward our two-legged and four-legged walkers! Don’t forget your poop bags!

Over the last five years, Panther Cheer athletes have volunteered their time at both the RAPS City of Richmond Animal Shelter and the RAPS Cat Sanctuary as part of their philanthropic involvement in the community. This group of compassionate athletes and coaches has initiated this inaugural walk to continue supporting their furry friends at RAPS. They hope other animal-loving individuals and clubs will join them at the annual Panther Pups & Puddles Walk!
