Mark your calendars, because our annual Cause 4 Paws event is back on September 11th, 2022 from 9AM-2PM! 

2022 is the 9th Cause for Paws Cruise-In and Pet Expo benefitting Partners with Paws of Lorain County.  The event has grown from a synergy between a car show with an adoption event into a full pet exposition with area rescues, pet related vendors, food trucks and of course a car show.   The purpose of the show is to raise awareness for “Partners With Paws”, a Lorain county based 501(C)(3) organization that assists local animal rescues with funding and has helped thousands of pets find warm, loving homes.   Over the past ten years we have had thousands of registered vehicles, dozens of pet adoptions and over tens of thousands of dollars raised for the shelters.  Even Fox 8’s own Dick Goddard had volunteered his time and stopped by to sign autographs and support the cause.  This year will be the seventh year at the intersection of state routes 2 and 60 in Vermilion. 


For 2022, planning up to this point has an expectation of 300+ Car show participants, over a dozen pet oriented vendors, ten animal rescues and four food trucks to provide the visitors with choices of refreshments.  The food vendors also typically take a portion of their profits from the day’s sales and give it to Partner’s with Paws.
