Celebrity Paws in the Park Walk for Animals Takes Place June 10th

Crews Subaru Announced as Presenting Sponsor Celebrating Animals and the People Who Love Them

Monday, March 20th | NORTH CHARLESTON, SC — Who will you walk for? That’s the question as thousands of people and their “best friends” gear up for Celebrity Paws in the Park presented by Crews Subaru on June 10th at Riverfront Park in North Charleston. “We would love everyone with a pet to form a team and then come out and walk for an animal in their life that has touched their hearts,” said Charleston Animal Society President and CEO Joe Elmore. “The walk is just one part of a day-long event that will include live music, food, fun and even balloon rides!”

Celebrity Paws in the Park is one of the biggest fundraising events for Charleston Animal Society, an organization that touches the lives of almost 20,000 animals every year. “There’s no better way to give to homeless animals, than to come to Paws in the Park and have a great time knowing you’re making a difference,” Elmore said.


Celebrity Paws in the Park takes place alongside the beautiful Cooper River. Come to Riverfront Park and plan to sit, stay and play all day.

The event includes dog activity zones throughout the park, including pet adoptions, Swift Paws lure coursing and canine demonstrations. See the world-famous “K9s in Flight,” the country’s premier high-flying shelter dog entertainers, in action-packed shows throughout the day. You can also relax and enjoy live music from our main stage, headlined by Midnight City.

Don’t miss the “Barks & Brews” craft beer festival and hot air balloon rides as part of the all-day fun. “We will truly have something for everyone and be sure to bring your dog too,” Elmore said.


Charleston Animal Society is thrilled that Crews Subaru is the Presenting Sponsor for Celebrity Paws in the Park for its third year.

“Crews Subaru is more than a car dealer. We love giving back to our community, especially when it comes to pets and their well-being,” said Ken French, Marketing and Events Guy for Crews Subaru. “We know pets and people are better together. Our entire Subaru team is thrilled to present this event again. As everyone knows, Subaru loves pets.”
