The 6th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K race and 1M walk to benefit Operation Paws for Homes – an all-breed 501c3 dog rescue – is the rescue’s 2nd biggest annual fundraiser focused on raising funds toward the medical needs of our dogs.  The event is attended by runners, dog lovers, families and, of course, their dogs!  Over 350 attendees come from the entire tri-state area to support the rescue.

Each year, Operation Paws for Homes incurs over $150,000 in medical costs.  This event aims to replenish a piece of those funds.  We encourage families, runners, walkers, supporters and anyone interested in helping this organization to join us !

Along with our popular silent auction – we will have raffle items, vendors and dogs!  Your dog is welcome to run or walk the course, too!

Through the end of October, 2019, this volunteer-driven organization rescued 801 dogs, placed 741 in homes, treated 72 for heartworm disease, rescued 170 cats, placed 109 cats in homes, spayed/neutered 88 feral cats and sent 38,139 pounds of food & supplies to rescue partners.
