We will continue to do packet pick-up today from 10-12pm at Lululemon in Towncenter and will re-open online registrations Sunday 10/29 at 8:00am - Thursday 11/2 at 6:00pm.  Limited registrations will be available the morning of Sunday, November 5th.

Grab your leash and hit the beach! Participate in the 5K Run (dogs and walkers welcome!), shop with our vendors, play games in our Kid's Corner, or participate in our 1 mile "pack walk"–all while showing your support for the animals! Dogs are welcome! Costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be awarded!
