If anyone ever thought that motorcycles and pets have nothing in common, they’d be wrong. Hogs 4 Paws is all about riding and raising money for shelters and rescues through its events and merchandise.
Founded in January 2016, Hogs 4 Paws produces select, officially sanctioned motorcycle Rescue Rides, Retreats and other FUNd-rai$ing events. Additionally, its exclusive Biker-Pet-Parent Swag allows organizations to team up with over 700 Harley-Davidson dealers and H.O.G. chapters across the country to tap into and capitalize on these fun and easy-to-organize events. And everything is geared towards benefiting animal welfare organizations. The mission is to “Live to Ride & Ride to Save Lives!” Hogs 4 Paws has new and expanded partnerships with American Eagle, Gruene, Javelina & Pig Trail Harley-Davidson Dealerships, Latin American Motorcycle Association & American Legion Riders, Off Leash K9 Training & REALTREE Naturals Dog Treats and American Flat Track Racing Series.
“Biker-Pet-Parents are passionate about their bikes and their pets,” says Chris Ruben, founder of Hogs 4 Paws. “Rain or shine, they love to ride; even more so to help animal shelters and rescues. So whether you ride a BMW, an Indian, a SlingShot, Suzuki or Vespa, come ride with us and be a Hell-p Razor!”
Hogs 4 Paws is pleased to announce its Rescue Ride and FUNd-rai$ing events schedule for the first half of the year:
Saturday, April 6th is the first Annual Hill Country Rescue Ride benefiting San Antonio Pets Alive. 1993 500cc World Champion and 2019 Motorsports Hall-of-Fame inductee Kevin Schwantz and his dog Tank will be grand marshals leading the ride.
On Friday, April 12th, Hogs 4 Paws is teaming up with Austin Speed Shop, Circuit of the Americas and MotoGP to power the third Annual Schwantz Soirée benefiting Bastrop County Animal Shelter.
