Dog Jog 5K

The Humane Society and Emporia Animal Shelter


The First Annual Dog Jog


Please join us for our first annual Dog Jog.  It will be a fun day of raising money for the shelter animals of our community. We will be hosting a 5K at Campus Woods, and participants can bring their own dogs to run with. You do not need to have a dog to join in the fun, however.  Registration is $15 and there is an extra $5 option (donation-based and optional) which puts your name in a drawing for one of three $50 gift cards.  This $5 will go toward getting cats the vaccinations and medicines they need. Registration comes with a free shirt to the first 50 people to sign up, and a Finals Survival Kit.

*Participants will need to sign a Waiver of Liability Agreement and Hold Harmless Agreement the day of the event.


Time: Saturday April 29th starting at 10:00 AM (no set end time, just when things die down)
