Paws for Prevention

Oakland/Rochester/Macomb Walk


Welcome to the Oakland/Rochester/Macomb Paws for Prevention page! Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for suicide prevention by inviting dogs and their owners to walk out of the darkness together. 

Every walker registered for the Oakland/Rochester/Macomb walk can make their online donation for Paws for Prevention here. 

When you donate a minimum amount of $10 to Paws for Prevention, you will be awarded with an official AFSP doggy bandana at the Paws for Prevention table on the day of the walk. 

Please remember to leave a note with your donation letting us know what size (small or large) bandana your dog will need, the name of your pet and the walker’s name (if different from the donor). 

Bandanas can be picked up at the event only (they will not be mailed). All donations made to Paws for Prevention are non-refundable. 

We cannot guarantee that donations made after September 7, 2022 will be added to the bandana distribution list used on the day of the event. If you make a donation on or after  September 7, 2022 please bring a receipt of your donation to Paws for Prevention with you on the day of the walk. 

If you have any questions please reach out to Lisa Matway at:

Thank you for your generous contribution and we can’t wait to see you and your dog at the Paws for Prevention table on September 10, 2022!
