2020- The Fast & The Furriest - Event Cancelled

Dear Race Supporters, The Board of Spay N Save Animal Clinic has made the decision to postpone this year's Fast and the Furriest race, for the safety of participants, volunteers and staff. We hope to reschedule for Spring or Fall 2021. We apologize for the wayward email which went out last week. 
Anyone who has already registered, please contact us at to let us know if you would rather receive a refund, or donate your $25 registration to our Spay It Forward fund. We thank you for your support and understanding, and hope you will continue to support Spay N Save in other ways in the meantime.

The Fast and The Furriest 5K

It wasn't too long ago that we were trying to save them all through rescue and adoption.  We realized that there were just too many.  And a piece of the puzzle was missing... Prevention through spaying and neutering.  Spay N Save was born in 2012 as a nonprofit, high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter clinic. Located in Central Florida (where cats can have 2+ litters / year and shelter euthanasia rates are as high as 70%, which was 17,316 animals in 2016), the need was overwhelming.  In just 6 short years, Spay N Save has already performed more than 52,500 surgeries on dogs and cats.  In that same time, county shelter intakes have gone down more than 27%, reducing greatly the number of animals being killed.  Please help us continue to save more lives by signing up for our 5K today!

There are several options for participating! The Fast and The Furriest 5k is:
-First, a chip-timed race for runners.
-Walkers are welcome too!
-A fun run/walk for people & their dog -- including a dog costume contest with prizes! (Walkers & people with dogs begin after the runners.)
-A virtual run! (You'll get a t-shirt & the good deed of participating without getting up early!)
