Reserve your place today to participate in the Spay Pride 5k walk/run on January 25, 2014 benefiting Panacea Animal Wellness Sanctuary Annual.
Panacea Animal Wellness Sanctuary is proud to host its first dog-friendly run/walk for families and their pets. The chip-timed 5K run/walk promotes valley animal welfare through spaying and neutering and benefits Panacea Animal Wellness Sanctuary (PAWS), a local non-profit organization that has rescued over 600 animals from euthanasia.
This annual event hosts plenty of fun family-focused events. If you’re not a runner, the expo area will be filled with local vendors and sponsors for shopping, information and free workshops. In addition to the race, the morning will be filled with family- and pet-friendly activities, including:
- Free “Be Aware of the Dog” mini-workshop for children from Pete and Mac’s Pet Resorts which teaches children how to be safe around the dogs in their neighborhood
- Free spay/neuter vouchers from the Spay Neuter Hotline for family pets
- Superstition Farm’s SuperTruck will be serving up treats for humans and dogs
- Performances by the Phoenix Area Disc Dogs
- Demonstrations by the Tempe Police Department K-9 Unit
- Shopping and pet-themed entertainment
The chip-timed run follows a beautiful course around Kiwanis Park Lake. First-aid and water stations will be available along the course. All 5K participants will receive an official Spay Pride t-shirt, a rainbow bandanna for their four-legged friend, and goodie bag. Friendly dogs and costumes are welcomed and encouraged. Gift baskets (sponsored by NERF Dog) will be awarded for best rainbow-themed costumes. Raffle, give-away prizes, and free samples provided by PetsWeekly and numerous pet-themed vendors.
