On Sunday, April 26, Activ4Pets took part in the second annual Run Fur Fun 5k hosted by the Paws 4 You Rescue. This year’s event was held at the Killian Greens Golf Club in south Miami, who were kind enough to allow their golf course to be transformed into a 5 kilometer race track – all for a good cause.
Over 700 people and pet participants descended onto the fairways to show their support for the work of Paws 4 You, who rescue hundreds of dogs each year from being euthanized by Miami-Dade Animals Services.
It was also great to see how many different companies, including Activ4Pets, showed their support by sponsoring the event. Some of our favorites were: Equipaws, a pet sitting and walking company, Miami Dog Runners and All About Paws, who offer dog training services as well as a backyard poop removal service!
Everyone was in such good spirits throughout the day, despite the record high heat – something that is hard to avoid in South Florida! Luckily there were plenty of ice filled pools to keep our furry friends cool before and after the race.
For the pooches, the Activ4Pets booth was a particularly popular stop. While their owners were learning about Activ4Pets Pet Health Records, e-Consultations and Second Opinions, the dogs were helping themselves to some special treats!
The day was a great success and raised much needed funds and awareness for a fantastic cause. The Activ4Pets team had a lot of fun and is proud to have been part of it. We can’t wait til’ next year’s event!
