Lace up your shoes and grab your pup for a brand new event!  Register for APL's first annual Donuts and Dogs 5K Fun Run to benefit the lifesaving work and the animals of the Animal Protective League!    

You can race as an individual, a family or create a team and fundraise together! Bring your sociable, well-behaved dog (must be up-to-date on all vaccinations, have proof of a current rabies vaccine and be at least four months of age).  Don't want to race but still want to be involved?  Register as an official Cat Napper where you can raise funds, win prizes, and support the animals without breaking a sweat! 

Start fundraising now and join us for the race September 14th at Southwind Park.  Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the race starts at 10 a.m.  There will be lots of free activities including doggie and human massages, demonstrations, photo booth with props, doggie cooling pools, and much more from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will even be treats for people and dogs alike! (Donuts provided by Krispy Kreme)
