For 30 years, Second Chance Pet Rescue of Grand Lake (formerly the Grove Humane Society) has been providing food, love, shelter, and veterinary care to Northeast Oklahoma’s homeless animals.
On Sunday, March 29th, runners, walkers and animal lovers are invited to come together for the first “Paws for a Cause” 5k Run sponsored by Grand Savings Bank, to benefit Second Chance Pet Rescue’s Capital Campaign Expansion Project.
It’s a day of fun, fitness, and fundraising for shelter supporters in our community. And the whole family is invited – kids and dogs, too!
This dog-friendly run will also feature a 1 mile Fun Run (or walk). Friendly, well socialized dogs are welcome to run or walk with their owners, with all dogs on a leash and under human control at all times. Dog owners are required to make sure dogs are current on vaccinations.
Local pet businesses will have vendor booths with pet friendly products and goodies available; the City of Grove will have city pet licensing information and forms available; and commemorate the event with “Pictures with Your Pooch” for a small donation.
Volunteers from Second Chance Pet Rescue will host a remote dog adoption. All of Second Chance Pet Rescue dogs are vet-checked, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, please open up your home and your hearts for these wonderful pets who will be looking for their forever families.
The race will begin at Grand Savings Bank, 1022 S. Main, Grove, OK.
Individuals can register online until 8 am Friday, March 27, or download a paper form at www.grandsavingsbank.com and drop off at any Grand Savings Bank location or until 2 pm on race day.
Race day registration opens at 1:30 p.m., 1 mile Fun Run starts at 2:30 p.m., followed by the 5k Run at 3 p.m.
The “Paws for a Cause” registration costs will be $20 for the 1 mile Fun Run; $30 for the 5K Run; with $5 off for student discount.
