5K Run/Walk for the Animals

21st Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals | Wildwood Park | May 5 

HSHA is hosting the 21st Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals on May 5 at Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. The funds raised go directly to the care of the over 500 pets currently residing at the shelter waiting for their FURever homes. There will be food, vendors, team pictures, and medals for our top runners. This family fun event has something for everyone to enjoy. Don't forget to bring your dog along too. A first place price will be given to the first canine to pass the finish line. 

A vaccine clinic will be held the morning of the event from 9:00-11:00 a.m.

IN HONOR OF YARD SIGNS:

Does your pet display unconditional love? Is your pet your best friend? Or are you grieving the recent loss of a pet? At this year’s 5K Run/Walk for the Animals participants will once again have the opportunity to honor their pet by purchasing a yard sign that will be displayed along the course. Consider sending in a picture (non-returnable) of your beloved pet to be displayed on the sign as well. For only $10 display the name of your furry family member(s). Signs can be pre-purchased or bought the day of the event at registration. Click here for a yard sign order form.
