Run Fur Fun 5k

Join us as we Run Fur Fun, and raise funds to save lives!  Register today to participate in this fun run with or without your canine. This flat, family and furry-friendly course is a great way to support animals in need, and meet other animals lovers and their four-legged friends.  Start a team, encourage your friends, family and fellow animal lovers to join you, or support you as a sponsor.   

More animals than ever are in need of our help, and every dollar raised helps to support injured, abused and homeless animals in Massachusetts.
