Tails & Trails 5K Come Run With Us!



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 help Animal Care reach the goal of making Greenville County a NO KILL community.

Post-race activities include the posting of results and award presentation, plus tail-waggin fun with our pet themed entertainment and vendor party.

Walk or Run as a Team!

As the largest open admission facility in South Carolina, Animal Care accepts all animals regardless of age, medical condition or behavior - last year alone more than 10,000 animals came through our doors. In 2017 we made great strides towards reaching our goal of becoming a NO KILL community. In 2018, we plan to make it happen! Help Greenville County become NO KILL in 2018 by participating in the Tails & Trails 5K. We need your help!
