Run with your best running partner - your dog

Tails & Trails is all about having a great time with your pet but not all animals are as fortunate. Circumstances sometime leave pets homeless and in need of somewhere to go, someone to provide medical care, food and a warm place to sleep.

We are here for them but it takes a lot of money to provide that much needed care, to support our innovative life-saving programs like targeted spay/neuter to help reduce our homeless pet population and prevention programs that keep pets out of the shelter and in their homes with the families that love them. You can set a fundraising goal when you register and send out a challenge to your friends, family and coworkers – to join us in our life- saving mission. Prizes will be awarded to participants that raise the most money.

Every dollar helps and YOU can make a difference!
