Friends of Shelter and Companion Animals
We were so happy to hold our Dog Jog in person this year. We followed all the CDC and County protocols for the safety of our participants.
The Dog Jog, the primary fundraiser for Friends of Shelter and Companion Animals, is generally held on the last Saturday in April.
The event has always turned to the talent of aspiring young local artists, who have produced a variety of memorable logos. Please see the link on this page for more information!
The Dog Jog includes a sanctioned 5K run and a 3.5K walk. Entrants with pets are eligible for fun prizes. This is a family friendly event and dogs of all sizes and shapes are welcome to participate.
And no, you don't need a dog in order to participate!
Our Logo contest for the 2022 Dog Jog will be announced in January of 2022.
Entry fees per family:
$20 first adult or child 12 years or older ($25 after April 7, 2019);
$15 each additional adult or child 12 years or older;
$5 each child 11 years and under (child-sized T-shirts with $5 registration).
Race check-in and T-shirt and informational packet pick-up time will be from 8:00-8:40 a.m. on April 27, 2019 at Rover Park. Race day registration will have the entry fees as stated above, but T-shirts may need to be mailed. One informational packet will be provided per family if requested; all entrants will receive a T-shirt (colored shirts for adults, white for children) unless “none” is requested. Special goodies will be awarded for shelter and rescue dogs.
Prizes will be awarded to first through third place winners for female and male runners with dogs in the 3.1-mile competitive run. Other awards and prizes will be given for dogs over 10 years and other (fun!) categories. Call 660-1648 with any questions.
All dogs must be on a 6 foot or shorter leash at all times. Please do not feed your dog for 90 minutes before or after the Dog Jog to help prevent bloat (twisting of stomach, a potentially fatal problem). Also, no bicycles, roller blades, or skateboards as many dogs react unpredictably around these methods of transportation. Wheelchairs and baby strollers are welcome. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, although the adult does not have to register. You do not need to have a dog to join in the fun!
