BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE VERONA STREET ANIMAL SHELTER
EVENT DATE: Jun 07, 2014
Hello Friends and Family!
I am running the Fast and the Furriest 5k on Saturday, June 7th. I am running for my dog, Jack, and for my "nephew," Oscar. I rescued Jack last December, and my sister rescued Oscar in May of 2012 from Rochester Animal Services. Jack and Oscar are amazing dogs who we would not have been able to adopt if it had not been for the care and love they received while at Rochester Animal Services.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds and awareness for Rochester Animal Services (RAS) and the Verona Street Animal Society (VSAS). RAS is a municipal care and control agency in the City of Rochester with an annual intake of over 6,000 dogs and cats. RAS is committed to increasing the live release rate for the animals in their care.
VSAS supports Rochester Animal Services by raising funds to help subsidize the spay/neuter program, promote and underwrite adoption specials and purchase microchip and other medical supplies that extend beyond the reach of the city’s budget.
Thank you in advance for any donation! Your donation will motivate me to run a little faster on race day!
