Join us for the Dog Jog & Fido Fest – A 5k Fun Run and Dog Walk! 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 a post-race street party downtown, so bring your friends to cheer you on as you finish and party the night away!

Please Note: Dogs must be 6 months or older and on a leash at all times (No Flexi-Leashes). Female dogs must not be in heat and dogs must be current on vaccinations, including rabies. The ARL reserves the right to dismiss any dog.
