"Run for the Dogs" 5kRace/2k Walk

Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption Dog Friendly 5k

Presented by: Mary's Dog Rescue & Adoption

Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization located in Northwood NH. Since it was founded in 2011, we have rescued more than 6,000 dogs from overcrowded shelters in the south- approximately 575 per year!  The dogs are transported to NH where they are quarantined for 48 hours. Upon their arrival a team of volunteers, as well as Mary's Dogs staff and veterinarian, Dr Jardon, welcome the dogs and care for them.  The dogs are screened for illness and and confirmed healthy with a State of NH Health Certificate prior to being taken home by their adoptive families.  After adoption, Mary's Dogs staff systematically reach out and support the dogs and their new families. All of this is made possible because of the kindness and generosity of Mary's Dogs supporters, including corporate sponsors of our annual Run for the Dogs race.  

Run for the Dogs has evolved into a wonderful outing enjoyed by dogs and their humans alike!  In recent years, the event has attracted over 150 runners and dozens of canine companions, created memorable visibility for race sponsors, and raised over $10,000 annually for Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption. All money raised in this event goes straight to our emergency medical fund that is made available as needed throughout the year.

The outdoor venue at the fairgrounds combined with safe distancing of runners and leashed dogs provide the perfect environment for adhering to covid safety protocol.  We will take every precaution possible and allow for ample distancing during race starts and for visiting the vendor area.  

Do you like to run 5k's?  Would you like to enjoy the company of your dog while simultaneously supporting a great cause?  Perhaps you have a business that would be interested in a sponsor package for an inexpensive way to get your business name out on 150 race shirts, website and facebook advertising?  There are so many ways you can help to "Be The Hero in a Dogs Life!"
