Dateline: Pasadena- Race For The Rescues, This Saturday

Race-for-the-Rescues-logoThe Rescue Train’s largest annual fundraising event, Race for the Rescues has raised over $2.5 Million to help save the lives of thousands of homeless animals in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. This day of fun includes a 5k, 10k, 1k Dog Walk and Kids Fun Run. There is also a “Couch Potato” Race for those that would like to donate from the comfort of their home. Participants can join as individuals or start a team. Dogs and cats will be available for adoption from local shelters.

Saturday, October 24, 2015 | Rose Bowl, Pasadena | Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. | The race begins at 8:30 a.m.

(You’ll also wanna check out “Ernie’s Angels.” Ernie was a big ol’ tabby who sadly passed away before the 2014 race. His hoomin has been matching every dollar raised by the race junior volunteer team. The goal is $2K which would then become $4K! See here.)

And here are some photos from last year’s event:

    This was also the day for Strut your Mutt!

  2. The dog balloons fooled me! I couldn’t figure that pic out. It took a few looks. Love all the smiling doggahs.

  3. Anyone think to check up on this charity? They seem to be an unknown by anyone who watches such things, but that at least means they’re not tied to HSUS or any of the other known scammers.
