Join the race to help homeless pets by participating in the Humane Society of Jefferson County’s 5th Annual Furry Friends 5K. This family-friendly and dog-friendly event will take place on Saturday, May 19 at 9 a.m. at the Jefferson County Fair Park.
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 scenic, flat 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, bobbing for tennis balls, a 50/50 raffle, live music by The Belle Weather, a D.J., and instant photo magnets by Flash Magnets.
We are honored to have Joal Derse Dauer and her dog, Sadie, join us as the Furry Friends 5K Guest of Honor this year. Joal and Sadie are spreading their message of compassion, acceptance, and kindness around the world and have recently released the book ‘Saving Sadie: How a Dog That No One Wanted Inspired the World’. Joyous and inspiring, it is a triumphant story about the power of unconditional love and second chances—for humans and animals alike. See Sadie’s inspirational story here: http://savingsadie.com/
