The Fetch 5K - 5.19.2018

What could be more fun than a long walk with your dog followed by a tasty craft beer or root beer? Answer: Nothing. So save the date for our fourth annual 5K Dog Jog where you get to do just that. We'll get things started at Wisconsin Brewing Company in Verona, WI - we'll take a nice long walk and finish with our annual party to celebrate five years of hard work, and over 1,500 dogs rescued! Grab your family and friends to join us for the 5K race or a 1 mile fun walk. All proceeds go towards our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care! If you're a business and you'd like to sponsor the walk, click here for sponsor information. More details about each portion of the event can be found below. Register by 4/22 to guarantee that you receive a t-shirt. 2018 race shirts are neon green with black print.
