The 8th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K race and 1M walk to benefit Operation Paws for Homes - an all-breed 501c3 dog rescue - is the rescue's 2nd biggest annual fundraiser focused on raising funds toward the medical needs of our dogs.

Each 2022, Operation Paws for Homes incurred over $125,000 in medical costs. This event aims to replenish a piece of those funds. We encourage families, runners, walkers, supporters and anyone interested in helping this organization while enjoying a fun event. Along with a silent auction and raffles, vendors will be greeting you as they, too, support OPH. As always, we welcome your leashed dogs to run or walk the course, too!

Like last year, this year's event is both live and virtual! So tell all your friends and family - wherever they are located - they, too, can participate in this event. Let's make it coast to coast! We are excited to include virtual options again and we hope you are just as excited to join us !

Don't miss this fun event! Register today. Special pricing is in effect until February 15!
