EVENT DATE: Sep 16, 2017
Join us for our Third Annual Doggie Dash on Saturday, September 16th at Kensington Park for a fun-filled morning for the whole family at one of our biggest events of the year, with a range of activities, including:

Your support helps fund adoption services, helps reunite lost pets with their family and provides food, shelter and medical care for dogs and cats until they find their perfect match through adoption.
The event will run from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm at Kensington Metro Park with a start time of 10:00 am for the 1 mile walk, 10:15 am for the 5K run, and fun activities following at 11:00 am. Registration/check in begins at 8:30 am.
If you have adopted a dog from us, you have a special invitation to join us for the event! We’ll have a special bandana “alumus” so your dog can be recognized as one very special pet! And you and your dog will be at the lead at the start of our walk/run.
All registrants receive an official Doggie Dash t-shirt.
You don’t need a dog to take part, just a desire to help animals in need.
We encourage you to increase the power of your participation by asking your friends and family to support your cause through donations. We will have prize incentives along the way for achieving certain levels of donations as well as a grand prize for the individual and for the team raising the most donations!
