QUESTION: What is Race For The Rescues?
ANSWER: Race For The Rescues is a day when all ages of animal lovers come out to run, walk, shop or adopt to help save the life of a homeless dog, cat or horse. We are a timed sporting event and have a mixture of serious athletes competing for times and people who just want to come out and walk with or without their dog to help support the benefiting animal welfare organizations. Not a runner? Then come join the fun of our Expo where we hold dog and cat adoptions, have a huge silent auction, entertainment, a dog costume contest, food trucks, pet psychics, unique pet products and more. IT’S A BLAST!
