5th Annual Mutt Strut Dog Walk & Fun Fest

"Animal Care Sanctuary would like to plan a 5k to accompany our 5th Annual Mutt Strut Dog Walk & Fun Fest. The event will be held May 16, 2015 at Riverfront Park in Sayre. Our run route has not yet been approved, but is in process.
If you aren’t familiar with us, we are located in East Smithfield and Wellsboro, PA and care for over 500 animals daily. We offer low cost veterinary services to the community as well. The Mutt Strut is our largest fundraiser of the year and we hope adding the 5k will help!
Anyway, is there anyone in your running club that would like to be on our Mutt Strut committee?
With Gratitude,
Rachel Rossiter
Director of Operations
