Second Chance Pet Adoptions' annual Racing for Rescues event is back, bigger and better than ever! With record-high attendance last year, the event has moved to Dorothea Dix Park and, for the first time, features a food truck (with vegan options). Join us for a life-saving event featuring a timed 5K with dogs, a timed 5K without dogs, and a fun walking course (dogs welcome). Prizes will be given to runners, fundraisers and raffle winners, and vendors of interest to pet owners and athletes alike will be joining us. Racing for Rescues is an awesome and fun way to help homeless cats and dogs in your community. Early-bird pricing with t-shirt guarantee ends April 19; students will receive a discount.
