Walkers and Runners! Lace up your shoes for the Humane Society's' annual 5K to support shelter pets. Leash up your dogs too, pets with current rabies vaccinations are welcome. Bring the whole family, bikers and strollers are also welcome.
This event is one of the shelter's largest fundraisers. 100% of proceeds generated by the Walk/Run directly benefits our stray and unwanted pets while they wait for new forever homes. Many of these pets require costly medical or behavioral rehabilitation prior to adoption.
This year's event will be held at the Grand Rapids Lion Park located at 2411 36th Street South, Wisconsin Rapids. There are many fun activities for the whole family to enjoy!
