It’s a day to celebrate and benefit the animals of Stafford Animal Shelter in Livingston, Montana sponsored by Small Dog Realty! Due to restrictions, this year’s 5K will be virtual, but that just opens up the fun for more people to participate and help raise much-needed funds for this small non-profit, no-kill animal shelter that takes in over 1,200 animals annually with no restriction on length of stay. All pets, not just cats & dogs, are welcome at Stafford regardless of age, breed, species or medical condition. They also help the community too by providing alternatives to surrounding by offering veterinary assistance, senior pet assistance, free pet food bank, behavior advice, free emergency boarding and much more. Running a shelter with this broad of a mission in a small community takes a lot of money and this “Bark in the Park” Fun Run / Doggie Walk is a fun and interactive way for you to help! Every little bit helps and your $30 entry fee will go a long way in helping save the lives of deserving pets by providing food, shelter, medical care, vaccines, spay & neuter surgeries and so much more!
On August 30th, 2020 we’re urging supporters everywhere to get out and walk / run / stroll / hike / bike a 5K in honor of Stafford! Hopefully, you’ll be doing it with your very own dog right by your side, it’s a great way to have a special day with your best friend while helping those who are less fortunate. Donating and participating in the virtual race is a great way to honor an adopted pet in your life! Sign up by August 21st so we can mail you your T-shirt and you can participate in our hashtag #sasbarkinthepark! We excited to see how far & wide our “virtual” race can travel!
