“We encourage everyone to bring their friends, family and coworkers out for this fun-filled day,” said Brian Weltge, President & CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. “One hundred percent of our programs and services are funded through donations by individuals, companies and grants. This is why events such as the Furry Skurry 5K and Furry Fest are so critical to our organization. Your support is helping us impact thousands of animals right in our community.”

This year’s event kicks off with a 5K race that you can do with or without your furry friend. Immediately following the race is a 1-mile walk so everyone can join in on the fun. Not into walking or running? Just join us for all the fun activities as part of Furry Fest.

“Furry Fest is a great way to really just get out and celebrate animals,” said Weltge. “We will have a ton of great things for your entire family to do, plus fun for your pets, too!”
