Friends of the Shelter
Helping Sick and Injured Dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center
5K for K9s is coming soon!
Saturday, September 30, 9 a.m.
Alum Creek State Park Beach
Join us at Alum Creek Beach Area on Saturday, Sept. 30, for a great run or walk on the beach. Register today to run or walk with your 2-legged and 4-legged friends to help us save some shelter dogs and get your t-shirt before the race.
Our annual run/walk will be held both virtually AND in person again this year. During the pandemic, we learned that for many of you, the virtual race sometimes works better with your schedule. So, if you’d prefer, you can participate in the race virtually from Sept. 28-Oct 1. Our online auctions will also be available those same days to give you time to bid.
With your registration, you’ll receive both one of our fun, soft t-shirts that are always a hit and a participation medal! The medal will help commemorate how you helped to save the sick & injured shelter dogs.
