Tails & Trails 5K Come Run With Us!



As the 6th Annual Tails & Trails 5K approaches, we can proudly say that this event is a huge part of what made it possible to declare Greenville County a no-kill community!
We need your help now more than ever to keep it that way.

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.

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!

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 2020, we have finally been able to declare Greenville County a no-kill community. We need your help now more than ever to save the dogs and cats that we have not been able to save before. Every dollar helps save lives in our community.
