Howl-O-Ween 5K Mutt Run/Walk
Today, we ask for your help raising $135,000 as we prepare for the exciting future! Your support will help us save moms with pups delivering on the streets in harm's way, provide food to starving dogs, and provide medical care to dogs suffering from unimaginable injuries. Come on and join us by helping!
Please join us at the 10th anniversary of our Annual Howl-O-Ween 5k Mutt Run and share in the FUN. By supporting California Labrador Retrievers and More on Saturday, Oct 28, you're helping us save even more dogs. Race begins at 8:30 a.m. at Road Runner Sports San Diego, and early packet pickup starts at 7:30 a.m.
Over 14,352 dogs, puppies, and mamas have been saved with the help of our 11,353 alumni and volunteers. Ten years ago, our first Mutt Run took place with 50 runners. This year we will surpass 500 runners supporting us as they run with their dogs, all decked out in costumes!
Register now to participate and start your training, plus start planning your costume for you and your forever friend. The top costume wins big.
Want to help even more? Get your friends and family on board to help you fundraise for the dogs -just link to our fundraising site: Donorbox Mutt Run Fundraiser. The top fundraiser wins a 3-night stay in Mission Beach at your own private cottage home. Don't want to fundraise, no problem; register for the race, and let's have some fun.
Dress up your dog and yourself for the Costume Contest! With awesome prizes for the top finishers!
Plus, Top 3 Runners will receive a runner's dream basket with a new pair of running shoes from Road Runner Sports and more.
