Join us on May 13, 2023


Welcome to Treasure Valley Paws for Prevention 2023

The Treasure Valley Paws for Prevention event is a pet parade to engage the community about how important our furry friends are in suicide prevention.

Feel free to walk your pets around Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park and take a day to celebrate our four-legged heroes. 

Money raised goes to critical research, education programs, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.
