Kane’s Pawsome 5K Run/Walk


 Why run/walk for pet families?

To end animal homelessness, it makes sense to help loved dogs stay in their furever homes. There are many reasons people face surrendering their dog - financial, difficulty finding dog-friendly housing and behavioral issues. Kane’s Krusade works closely with low-income pet families to address their challenges and keep their dog out of a shelter. Companion animals are essential to many of the most vulnerable populations - the disabled, elderly, veterans and unemployed. Keeping a pet family together strengthens the well-being of people and pets. It also saves tax payers money by decreasing the number of dogs animal control officers must process and local shelters must handle.

What does the Pawsome 5K cost?

The entrance fee for runners and walkers is the same - $30. Advance registration is required.

Can I run with my dog? What do I need to know?

  • Yes, as long as your dog does well with other dogs and people.

  • One dog per runner.

  • Dogs must be at least 6 months old and vaccinated.

  • Dogs must be leashed at all times. Please, no retractable leashes.

  • We recommend dogs run with a harness to prevent injuries to neck and throat.
