Mission Paw-looza is a brand new community event to raise money to increase access to veterinary care for pets in need.

At the Paw-looza, you and your furry companion can be part of a 2 mile fun Run/Walk and enjoy the pet and family-friendly Carnival right outside Mission's front doors. 


EVENT INFO: Saturday, June 4, 2022

2 Mile Fun Run/Walk

10 am/9:30 am check in


Run, walk, skip, dance or prance! This 2 mile route takes you from Mission Animal Hospital around Lake Smetana and back in time to enjoy the carnival. We expect most people to complete the route (walking) in about 45 minutes. Pet and family friendly!


10 am - 2 pm


Meet area nonprofits and pet-friendly businesses, play animal-themed games, enjoy stage performances and food trucks, and more. Pet and family friendly. No registration necessary to attend the carnival only!



More than 7 in 10 Americans live paycheck to paycheck and veterinary care often remains out of reach for their furry loved-ones. 


Contact for information about volunteering. 

Contact for information about sponsorship.


One-third of pets need emergency veterinary care each year. When veterinary care is inaccessible, pet owners may be faced with heartbreaking decisions.
