!In 2013, our Dog Jog and 5K Run raised more than $140,000 to benefit the homeless pets in our care and we look forward to meeting or exceeding that success in 2014! Raising donations is easier than you might think, and top fundraisers will earn great prizes! Any registered participant may customize their own fundraising web pages and send emails to friends and family.
We welcome all Richmond SPCA supporters to come out, cheer on our runners and walkers, and visit our vendor fair. All events take place at our Robins-Starr Humane Center, located at 2519 Hermitage Road in Richmond, Virginia. All events are pet friendly except for the 5K Run, which is for people only. Participants may register individually or as part of a team, and have the option of raising donations to help support the pets cared for by the Richmond SPCA. For additional information, please contact Lisa Clarke at 804-521-1318 or email@example.com.
