The fun starts …. well, super early if you’re a volunteer, early if you’re a runner, and a reasonable breakfast time if you’re a dog walker. In other words, it’s a full day of fun, dogs, entertainment and more!
The 10K and 5K races begin at 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., respectively; the Dog Walk begins at 10:30. There are also a variety of dog contests and awards including the Furriest, Largest, Smallest, Best Trick, Hot Dog Bobbing, Owner Look-Alike, and Ruff-Ruff Relay Race.
Inside the shelter, you can visit the dogs and cats who are looking for “furever” homes. You’ll find all the info on the website for the Verona Street Animal Society, the non-profit organization that supports the municipal shelter.
