Time: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Join the race to help homeless pets by registering for the Humane Society of Jefferson County’s 4th Annual Furry Friends 5K Run/Walk. This family-and dog-friendly event will take place on Saturday, May 20, at 9:00 a.m. at the Jefferson County Fair Park.
Registration is easy.  Stop by the shelter to fill out a registration form, or go to to register on-line.  Early Bird discounts are available through April 15 - $30.00 for adults (ages 14 and older) and $20.00 for children (school-age to age 13).  Registering early helps the Humane Society prepare for the event and also guarantees participants an awesome race day t-shirt and a swag bag full of goodies from the event sponsors. The registration fee will increase by $5.00 after April 15. 
Hundreds of human participants and their canine companions have taken part in this race, providing our community with a healthy and fun event that gets bigger and better every year. The FF5K course ensures that first time walkers and runners can comfortably participate alongside more serious runners.  Along with the race, the day will feature dog lure and agility courses, many area vendors, face painting, concessions, a 50/50 raffle and tunes provided by Good Time Music Service.
The Humane Society of Jefferson County has proudly served the community for over 90 years.  It is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which relies on donations and fundraising.  In addition to reuniting lost pets with their owners, the HSJC provides pet adoption, 24 hour stray animal pick up, low cost rabies vaccination clinics, a safe keep program, the Furry Friends Kids Camp, humane education classes and pet therapy visits.  All of these efforts are done with the hope of creating a more informed, compassionate and humane community.
If you’re looking for a day filled with excitement, fun, fellowship and lots of tail wagging, plan to take part in this year’s Furry Friends 5K on May 20.  All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County.   For more information, please contact Sara Lastusky, Community Outreach Coordinator, at 920-674-2048.
