Miles for Mutts 5K to Benefit Animals in Need

Our first ever 5K race is just weeks away and we are beyond excited. We have partnered with our friends at Anytime Fitness in Concord to bring Lake County and the surrounding communities an active way to help the homeless animals in our care. This out and back 5K (3.1 miles) will start and end at Anytime Fitness in Concord. There will be awards for our top runners and you will be greeted by some LHS adoptable animals, staff and volunteers at the finish line! We welcome both walkers and runners to participate and help save lives!

All proceeds from Miles for Mutts 5K will benefit the homeless animals at Lake Humane Society. Animals like Aziriyah and Tennessee. Aziriyah came to LHS because her previous owner was moving and could not take her along. They surrendered her to LHS and she was absolutely terrified at first. Now, she is much more comfortable and adorably, another LHS adoptable dog, Timmy, has helped her come out of her shell and gain more confidence.

Tennessee came to LHS after being abandoned by his owner. He has been waiting at LHS for his forever home ever since. He likes everyone to know he's there, so when we get visitors at the shelter he's always showing off his singing voice. He talks and talks day after day and somehow he's still here.

There are hundreds of other animals, like Aziriyah and Tennessee, who have nowhere else to turn and count on us to help give them the second chance they deserve. Can you help us help them? We can't continue our lifesaving work without YOU!

Lake Humane Society has been saving lives since 1937 and relies solely on donations. By participating in fundraising events, like Miles for Mutts, you are not only helping to bring awareness to this cause, but also helping to raise much needed funds. We hope you will help us make our first annual 5K a success and register today!

Registration for Anytime Fitness members is just $15 and $20 for non-members.

Parking will be available at Hope Ridge Church down the street from Anytime Fitness - please bring along a non-perishable good to donate to the church in exchange for parking. While we love our canine companions, we ask that you leave them at home for their safety and the safety of our runners. The course is on a busy road.
