ARE YOU PUP ENOUGH? Helen Woodward Animal Center's 4th Annual Puppy Love 5K Run/Walk challenges you to 'pup-up' and go the extra mile for the animals you love February 10th 2013.

The Center is not just another no-kill animal shelter. Our programs find homes for orphaned pets, connect therapy animals with people in need, and celebrate the human-animal bond. We fulfill our mission to promote "people helping animals, and animals helping people" with the help of committed, passionate and creative citizens like you.

At Helen Woodward Animal Center, we see animals fight against all odds, survive, and become truly amazing members of our families and communities. The Puppy Love 5K Run/Walk is a chance for you to get involved, make an impact and have a BLAST!

The “race” starts at 8:00 AM. Entrance to the course after 8:30 AM will not be permitted.

Registration opens at 7:00 AM- day-of registration is $45 and no one registering the morning of the run will receive a timing chip.

Register online today! Pre-registration will close 11:59pm Monday February 4th! Tell your favorite procrastinator to hurry!

NOTE: This is a dog friendly event- please do bring Fido! Dogs will be permitted on the course & event area.
