THE 2018 RUN FUR FUN 5K
On the morning of March 3rd, we were greeted with sunny and mild weather for the more than 800 runners and walkers, 600 dogs and 40 volunteers raising funds for our shelter at the 6th Annual Run Fur Fun 5K at New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins. More than $23,500 was raised to help us save more lives and continue to improve our new shelter home. RESULTS HERE!
The Run Fur Fun is geared for the whole family, even your dogs! This year’s pet friendly run/walk will be at New Belgium Brewing and features a loop course, free post-race beer, pancakes from Snooze, music by the Swashbuckling Doctors, sponsor booths and long sleeve t-shirts!
