New Date: TBD

While Texas is in its first stages of reopening, there are still many unanswered questions related to large social gatherings. For this reason, and to allow CARE volunteers the time we need to reorganize our event around social distancing guidelines, we have decided to postpone our “Run 4 the Rescue” one more time with a new date to be announced soon. 

We are sincerely grateful for your support and understanding. Your safety and the safety of volunteers and staff will always be our first priority.  We will announce a new date for the event within the next 30 days.

IN THE MEANTIME… Please tune into FACEBOOK, at CARE Animal Rescue, on May 30 at 5:00 PM for our LIVE RAFFLE drawing. All registrations prior to May 12 include a free ticket in this raffle. We have already entered your ticket in the drawing to win a 2-night stay for up to 13 guests at Barons Creek Camp vacation rental in Fredericksburg! The winner will be mailed a certificate to use when booking their free vacation. Tune-in for the FB Live raffle and you will also get a “sneak preview” of the goody bag and race T-shirt you’ll get on race day.
