Southern Paws is Back

Southern Paws 2021 is happening! The event will be taking place next Autumn, at a campsite in the Canterbury area. Further details will be published as we work out our plans for the next event!

To everyone who attended last year - thank you! You helped make this event an amazing weekend for all of us. A collective of anthropomorphic enthusiasts, more commonly known as furries, came together for the weekend of a lifetime in Waipara.

For everyone else - below you'll find featured photos from our 2019 event (soon!) alongside a video produced by one of our awesome attendees, Wolfie ‘Zombie’ Husk.
