WHAT IS THE HOWLOWEEN 5K & DOG WALK?
Home at Last Dog Rescue
All proceeds from the 5K and Dog Walk will benefit Home at Last Dog Rescue. Home at Last Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a group of volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high-kill shelters, as well as owner-surrender dogs who need to be re-homed due to unfortunate circumstances. We are not a shelter, and we have no central location for the dogs we rescue. We pull dogs from various shelters and provide foster homes until they are adopted. In doing so, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy mill and pet store dogs, thereby reducing the demand for, and ultimately, the supply of, such dogs. We strive to match each dog with the right family after the dog has been observed in a foster home. HAL is a 100% volunteer organization. 100% of adoption fees go back into the rescue to cover shelter pull fees, vet care, supplies and various other expenses.
Our 4th Annual Howloween 5K and Dog Walk is set to take place on Saturday, October 27th, 2018 at Parkside Place Park in North Wales, Pa. This event consists of a 5K and 1 mile dog walk, 10-15 pet/fitness related vendors, food trucks, dog activities and a costume contest. Four legged friends are welcome to attend all activities, making this event unlike any other in the area!
