Join us for the Dog Jog & Fido Fest – A 5k Fun Run and Dog Walk presented by Anderson Animal Hospital – Saturday, May 16th! This isn't your everyday 5k fun run/walk...whether you have a dog or not you can participate to support the animals at the ARL! Participants will end the race at The Copper Cup’s post-race street party downtown, so bring your friends to cheer you on as you finish and party the night away!

Participants at all levels will receive a goody bag (register early to guarantee your shirt size!) and enjoy a day of fun in support of the animals at the ARL.

At 6:00 p.m. the street party will end but the after party will start at The Copper Cup! So take your dogs home, get your party pants on, and join us for a great night supporting a great cause!
