About This Activity

The 5th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K race and 1M walk to benefit Operation Paws for Homes - an all-breed 501c3 dog rescue - is the rescue's 2nd biggest annual fundraiser focused on raising funds toward the medical needs of our dogs. 

Each year, Operation Paws for Homes incurs over $150,000 in medical costs.  This event aims to replenish a piece of those funds.  We encourage families, runners, walkers, supporters and anyone interested in helping this organization while enjoying a fun event. 

Silent auction item this year include 2 round trip tickets on JetBlue Airlines, 10 Disney one-day park hopper passes and a 2-hour wine class for TWENTY people.  You have to bid to win!

Along with the silent auction items, there are vendor door prizes, raffle items, vendors and dogs!  Your dog is welcome to run or walk the course, too! 

This year we will have doggie games and a kids' fun run to add to the excitement of the day. Kids 10 and under are FREE to join us and can participate in the fun run.   Kids 10 and under, if running, will not be timed.

Don't miss this fun event!  Register today.
