Wondering how you can raise money for homeless dogs in Miami while having fun with your pup? Wonder no more! You can join us for the second annual Paws 4 You Run Fur Fun 5K on April 26! This is a great rain-or-shine fundraiser in which you can walk/run one mile with your dog for fun, or take part in an officially-timed race on a certified course. For those who wish they had a dog but don’t, there will be plenty of willing doggy volunteers from the Rent-a-Dog Booth! We’re excited to be a Top Dog Sponsor for the second year in a row, and hope you visit our booth before and after your run! Each participant will receive food, refreshments, a drawstring backpack with a T-shirt and bandanna, and a medal while supplies last, so be sure to register early online!
How to Enjoy the RUN FUR FUN:
There is of course the run or walk, starting at 4 p.m., but there are also many pet-friendly vendors, food trucks, and adoptable dogs about, as well! We are thrilled that Paws 4 You alum, Lucy, convinced her dad, Dave Barry, to MC the event. We take care of this special pup and know first-hand what a huge heart and giving spirit she has. Thanks for pulling through, Lucy and Dave! Who else is joining? Lots of pet care professionals, like our friends at Applause Your Paws, Fuji and Friends, Smiley Pet Stop, and Pet’s Best! We’re looking forward to Kona Ice Food Truck and and Mr. PB&J food truck.
Last year’s 5k was a lot of fun! The pups all cooled down in big plastic kiddie pools, treats were dispensed, new friends were made, and pups found new homes. It’s a great event for family and friends, for building community, and for raising awareness for the strays in Miami-Dade County! We’ll see you there!
