We love dogs (and we love adopting them – see here, here, here, and here!) so creating a team for the Sacramento SPCA’s 20th Annual Doggy Dash was a no-brainer, and we’d love for you to join our team (“GOTGSac”).
This is a great excuse for you and your pup to socialize, get some exercise and support an amazing cause. 4,000 are expected to attend, and the SPCA hopes to raise $250,000 to help find forever homes for the nearly 12,000 homeless animals they see every year.
Other funtivities include the 7th Annual Pug Races, costume contests (ugliest, best wag, best smile, best kisser, best tricks, most magnificent pup and more), booths promoting pet-friendly businesses, and demonstrations by local organizations including the Sacramento Police K9 Unit. If this is your first Dash, check out Mary Beth’s tips and advice here.
