The Event

Welcome runners to the 4th Annual 5k at Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens! The Southern Paws Animal Rescue 5k is the only 5k race to take place at historic Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens. Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens is one of Americas oldest working plantations, continually growing crops for over 320 years.

This event is a benefit for the Southern Paws Animal Rescue. Debbie McLawhorn is a retired lieutenant with the Mount Pleasant Police Department and the owner/operator of Southern Paws Animal Rescue. What started out as a rescue for neglected and abused dogs…has expanded to virtually ALL animals.

Let’s all get together for the animals and run around Boone Hall!

There are 2 ways to register for the event.

First, is just the boring…normal…pay an entry fee and run.

Second, is to register for the race and bring a bag of Dog/Cat/Goat/Deer/Horse food to the event…and save $10 on the registration fee!

A little about Southern Paws Animal Rescue:

Our mission statement:

We are a 501c3 rescue Southern Paws Animal Rescue (SPAR) and we are passionate about saving abused and neglected animals in need of a second chance. Our goal is to restore each animal back to good health so that one day they may have a loving home they so deserve. We take special cases where these animals have been abused or neglected for so long it takes them months to recover medically. We work hand and hand with Law Enforcement to ensure that we are the voice of these animals in the court system. Southern Paws Animal Rescue will always give these animals a home and they will always be safe even if they don’t get adopted. We collect donations by special events, our Facebook page Southern Paws Animal Rescue Mount Pleasant, SC as well as our website Help us Help them they just want to be loved and are all so forgiving of what they have endured.
