Registration is easy. Visit to sign up on-line, or stop by the shelter to fill out a registration form. Registering early helps the Humane Society prepare for the event and also guarantees participants a race day t-shirt and a swag bag. Register on or before April 4 to take advantage of the early bird discount of $30 for ages 14 and up and $20 for ages 13 and under.

Hundreds of human participants and their canine companions have taken part in this race, providing our community with a healthy and fun event that gets bigger and better every year. The scenic, flat course ensures that first time walkers and runners can comfortably participate alongside more serious runners.

Along with the race, the day will feature many area vendors, bobbing for tennis balls, concessions, a 50/50 raffle, music and more..

Those looking for a day filled with excitement, fun, fellowship and lots of tail wagging, plan to take part in this year’s Furry Friends 5K on May 22. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County.
