Pawker Run


It’s that time again! The 14th Annual Pawker Run to benefit the Frances R. Willis SPCA in Dorchester County, will be held on Saturday, September 9th presented by Lowcountry Harley-Davidson!

Every dollar raised, through Summerville’s premiere pet-loving motorcycle ride, enables Frances R. Willis SPCA to continue its lifesaving work.  This enables all of the important work of caring for more than 300 animals every single day, assisting the public with advice, our animal food bank, and supporting our outreach, education and animal foster care programs. The Annual Pawker Run is one of our largest fundraisers and our goal is to top last year and raise $40,000.  Your support is critical to the success of the event. 

Join us for our exclusive Pawker Run after party! Visit our vendor booths, adopt a dog and learn about our shelter, dance to some music, enter our raffle drawing, and enjoy food and beer by local breweries! Tickets are $10 per person. Entry to the after party is included in tickets for the ride.
