Paws for Prevention is a heartfelt initiative by AFSP Nebraska, marking its inaugural fundraiser in collaboration with the local Veterinary, Animal Welfare, and Pet-centered small business communities. This unique event promises a day filled with furry fun for dogs and their families, featuring engaging activities, diverse vendors, an exciting raffle, and more. Importantly, all proceeds from this event contribute to the crucial cause of suicide prevention work in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska. This family-friendly gathering aims to create a sense of community while raising awareness and support for mental health, envisioning the beginning of an annual tradition that attendees and their furry friends can eagerly anticipate each year.
