DELRAY BEACH, Fla., March 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Richmond SPCA Dog Jog is back for their 20th annual fundraising event which will take place on Saturday, March 26th at Richmond SPCA’s Robins-Starr Humane Center at 2519 Hermitage Road. After two years, Richmond pet lovers will once again have the opportunity to get together and race in person. There will also be a vendor fair with shopping and food trucks, a Kids’ Zone with face painting and crafts and more at the SPCA grounds.
All net proceeds will benefit pets in the care of Richmond SPCA, as well as community programs such as low-cost veterinary services, dog training classes, and educational programs for children. In 2021 alone, the no-kill shelter rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over 4000 surrendered pets and at-risk cats and dogs transferred from other shelters.
Also returning will be the Dog Jog and 5K Run Raffle, sponsored by PetMeds®. Raffle entrants can win prize packages including a private movie party at Movieland at Boulevard Square, an Apple Watch Series 7, grocery and restaurant gift cards, and more.
“We’re thrilled to sponsor the raffle again for Richmond Dog Jog’s 20th anniversary,” says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at PetMeds®. “The event keeps getting bigger and better with more opportunities for pet lovers to win prizes, enjoy the fresh air, and best of all help care for cats and dogs in need.”
