5K for K9s

, ,

The Friends of the Shelter 5K for K9s is our largest fundraiser and is held at Alum Creek State Park. It is a 5K run or walk and, thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of the proceeds raised goes to help pay for the medical care for sick and injured dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter. Run or walk with your four-legged friends and then stay for the raffles and prizes for top runners. Adoptable dogs from the Franklin County Dog Shelter and other local rescues will be there to cheer you on.
