We're BACK: 6th Annual Tails & Trails 5K!

Race the trails (or go for a casual stroll) at Conestee Park side by side with your best running partner - your dog! Whether you're racing with or without your four-legged companion or just walking the trail to support a good cause, Tails & Trails is fun for everyone. Make a difference in the lives of homeless animals and register today. All proceeds from Tails & Trails go directly to benefit the animals of Greenville County Animal Care. Post-race activities include an awesome vendor village full of great local goodies, the posting of results and award ceremony, plus tail-waggin fun with our pet themed entertainment and vendor party!

Run with your best running partner - your dog

We need your help! You can raise funds to save more lives. Set a fundraising goal when you register and ask your friends, family and coworkers to help you save lives by donating.

As the largest open admission facility in South Carolina, Animal Care accepts all animals regardless of age, medical condition or behavior. Through the implementation of many life-saving programs, like targeted spay/neuter, we have seen a decrease in animal intake of more than 50% in just 5 years. Now in 2022 we are maintaining our No Kill Community and helping keep families and pets together with even more innovative programs designed to help pets and the people who love them. But, we need your help more than ever to continue our lifesaving mission. Every dollar helps save lives in our community!
