The PawsWay Event Centre will be permanently closing on Sept. 5, 2017. 

For nearly 10 years, those of us at PawsWay have enjoyed promoting responsible pet ownership and well-being, while giving Toronto’s pets and pet lovers a physical space to celebrate the world of dogs and cats.  Our facility will remain open to the public through Sept. 4, during which time we will continue to provide the same enriching experience and programming for our visitors.  If you have any questions about any upcoming activities, please contact

Le centre d’activités PawsWay fermera définitivement le 5 septembre 2017.

Durant près de dix ans, nos employés de PawsWay ont pris plaisir à encourager la possession responsable d’animaux familiers et le bien-être de ceux-ci, tout en offrant aux animaux familiers et à ceux qui les aiment de la région de Toronto un endroit physique où célébrer les chiens et les chats. Notre établissement restera ouvert au public jusqu’au 4 septembre. D’ici là, nous continuerons à proposer la même expérience et la même programmation enrichissantes à nos visiteurs. Si vous avez des questions sur l’une des activités à venir, veuillez communiquer avec
