These mutts know how to strut! Sign up your pup for a dog-specific race in Carrollton benefiting the Carrollton Animal Services and Adoption Center. The race will start at the McInnish Dog Park and will route through the sports complex for a full 5K. A shorter fun run/walk route will be offered to smaller or older dogs, or dogs who are still working off some holiday weight. Don’t have a dog? Your new best friend is waiting for you at our Adoption Center!

Humans who register by January 12 are guaranteed a race T-shirt, race bag, and timing chip. A special gift will be given to all dogs that are also registered early. There will be plenty of play time, treats, giveaways, and water after the run.

Race Day Registration & Warm-up starts at 7 am. The 5K race starts at 8:30 am and the Fun Run/Walk starts at 8:35 am, with the awards ceremony following the race at 9:30 am. For those who register by February 12, packet pick up is at Rosemeade Recreation Center, 1330 E. Rosemeade Parkway, Thursday, February 15 from noon to 8 pm and Friday, February 16 from 8 am to 8 pm.
