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.

We need your help! Take charge and raise funds that will help move us towards our goal of becoming a NO KILL community in 2019. Set a fundraising goal when you register and ask your friends, family and coworkers to help you save lives by donating.

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. 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 2019, we only need to adopt one more pet per day to finally build a NO KILL community. Help us raise the funds to do that by participating in the Tails & Trails 5K. We need your help!
