Making your weekend plans? Why not join some fundraisers that promise a good time and a chance to raise money for local pet charities?

Put on your walking shoes and join Paws with a Cause at Lindenwold High School this Saturday, starting at 9 a.m. Join the dog walk at 10 and stay for music, food, vendors, and raffles. Cost is $5 per person ($2 for those with valid student IDs) and proceeds benefit The Camden County Animal Shelter. CCAS will also be hosting its annual Pet Festival next Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The family friendly event will feature pet vendors and adoptable animals from CCAS and other area shelters. The Pet Festival will be held at the shelter, 125 County House Rd. in Blackwood.

On Sunday, Lambertville-based Animal Alliance will host a Taste of Italy fundraiser, featuring Italian wines from Philips’s of Stockton and a small bites tasting at Hamilton’s Grill Room on Coryell Street in Lambertville. The evening will also feature a tricky tray, raffles, and 50/50 drawing. Tickets are $75 per person and proceeds benefit Animal Alliance’s Planned Pethood low cost spay, neuter, and vaccine clinic, as well as the Daniel Lustig Special Medical Fund for injured dogs. Anyone interested in attending should contact Denise Nardi at

If your heart tends more toward four-legged creatures of the equine species—Mylestone Equine Rescue is holding a Breyer Model Horse Show and Fun Day at Horsemen’s Outlet in Lebanon on May 21. All entry fees will be donated to Mylestone and help them give abused, neglected horses a loving home. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Speaking of horses: Mark your calendars now for ReRun’s annual Benefit Trail Ride on May 28 in Washington’s Crossing State Park. ReRun will also be holding a special Father’s Day eBay Moneigh auction June 5-12. Check back here for more details.
