Howloween 5k, Dog Walk, and Fall Festival
Oct 28 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Our 3rd Annual Howloween 5K and Dog Walk consists of a 5K followed by 1 mile Dog Walk and Fall Fair with 50+ vendors, contests and activities for all ages. Four legged friends are welcome to attend all activities, making this event unlike any other in the area! All proceeds will benefit Home at Last Dog Rescue, a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization, solely based on volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high kill shelters, as well as owner surrender dogs that need to be rehomed due to unfortunate circumstances. In doing so, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy mill and pet store dogs, therefore reducing the demand for and ultimately the supply of such dogs.
