Race for the Rescues is an annual charity run/walk event that helps to save the lives of dogs, cats, and horses. Participants range from serious athletes competing in the timed sporting event to casual runners supporting local animal welfare organizations to animal lovers enjoying a fun walk with or without their dog.
After the race, everyone is invited to check out the pet expo where they boast a silent auction, entertainment, and food trucks. There are also dozens of vendors sharing their unique pet products, even pet psychics! Of course, no charitable pet event would be complete without dog and cat adoptions, too.
These types of events are the best because I get to meet so many different dogs and help to support a great cause!
