Running for Rescues 5K
Cancelled for 2023
BENCHS partners with Key City Running in its Annual Running for Rescues 5K. Running for Rescues is held the third Sunday in August each year. This event draws hundreds of people and their dogs every year.
Each year, BENCHS provides services for about 1,000 animals. Each pet is evaluated, examined, given appropriate vaccinations and dewormings, spayed/neutered, treated for ailments and injuries as needed, and given lots of TLC. There is no time limit for pets in our care, and provided they are happy and healthy, they will remain in our care as long as necessary to find the perfect match.
This fundraising event helps us to continue providing these important services to pets in need. It is also a really good opportunity for pet lovers to unite and celebrate the human-animal bond! (Don’t forget your poop bags!!)
