Because animals do not have a voice. Four million cats and dogs-about one every eight seconds-are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Most of these animals die unwanted and alone.
Race For The Rescues believes that by uniting animal lovers and animal welfare organizations to work together we can change those heartbreaking statistics and make our world a better place.
The donations raised through Race For The Rescues will be used to help save the lives of once forgotten dogs, cats and horses and help them become cherished family members. In addition, providing important programs to the community such as veterinary care for the pets of low-income families, free spay and neuture clinics and a shelter intervention program.
Please join us to run, walk, shop or adopt! Or be there in spirit by registering for our Couch Potato race or making a donation.
