Event Description

11th Annual Dash for the Dogs 5K Run/Walk to raise funds for the dogs & cats under our care at Animal House Shelter, Inc.

You can Run or Walk the 5K with your dog or without!  All dogs must be up to date on all vaccinations and be excellent around all other animals and people.

The Race is Certified & Timed by J3 Timing and is an excellent race for runners of all levels.  There is also a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk directly after the 5K!

100% of the proceeds go towards the dogs and cats at our No Kill Animal Shelter.  We are a 501C3 and all donations are tax deductible.  

Founded in June 2002, Animal House Shelter rescues and cares for homeless animals. Most of the dogs and cats that we take in are from high kill facilities that are euthanizing due to lack of space.  Many have been abused, neglected or abandoned . Once rehabilitated and ready, they are carefully matched with prospective adopters and placed in loving homes. We do take in some owner relinquishments as well and there are a variety of reasons people give up their dog or cat to us.  The most common reasons are lack of time due to a change in work schedule, moving, allergies, new baby, etc. Like people, animals have distinct personalities that make them unique. At Animal House we are proud to say that these animals are treated like our own. We care enough to be certain they go to the right loving, forever home.

Dogs are encouraged to participate in the run or walk too!! The first two dogs to cross the finish line receive prizes!

We invite you to create your own fundraising page to help us save lives and spread awareness! 
This is also a great option for those who choose not to run or walk in the 5k.
