_ The 2022 Fast and The Furriest 5K Run/Walk:
It wasn't too long ago that we were trying to save them all through rescue and adoption. We realized that there were just too many. And a piece of the puzzle was missing... Prevention through spaying and neutering. Spay N Save was born in 2012 as a nonprofit, high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter clinic. Located in Central Florida (where cats can have 2+ litters / year and shelter euthanasia rates are as high as 70%, which was 17,316 animals in 2016), the need was overwhelming. In just 10 years, Spay N Save has already performed more than 81,150 surgeries on dogs and cats. In that same time, county shelter intakes have gone down more than 27%, reducing greatly the number of animals being killed. Please help us continue to save more lives by signing up for our 5K today!
There are several options for participating! The Fast and The Furriest 5k is:
-First, a chip-timed race for runners.
-Walkers are welcome too!
-A fun run/walk for people & their dog(s) (Walkers & people with dogs begin after the runners.)
-A virtual run! (You'll get a t-shirt & the good deed of participating without getting up early!)
Thru August 22st -$25.00
After - $30.00
