During this time of economic stress, shelter donations are down and shelter fundraisers have been cancelled, but the needs of homeless dogs and cats in our care are as great as ever. Pets 2 the Rescue is a 1-mile and 5K virtual run/walk event to raise funds for MAARC and other non-profit animal shelters and pet adoption agencies across the US.
Dogs wants to walk or run to help less fortunate shelter animals. Cats want to help, too. Pets 2 the Rescue is their opportunity!
Register between now and June 15th for just $10 and 100% of your registration fee goes to MAARC. You can make an even greater impact by making an additional donation as you register. You can also purchase Pets 2 the Rescue merchandise (t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, embroidered hats, mugs, etc) from the Pets 2 the Rescue ETSY store (which will be up and running soon) to help.
How does it work? 3 easy steps:
Register for the virtual 1 mile or virtual 5K any time between May 1 – May 31. During registration you will be asked to choose your participating Shelter and team. Be sure to select MAARC and 100% of your $10 registration fee will come to us. That’s right, 100%. (You can also choose to make an additional donation as your register.)
Walk or Run your distance (with your pet if you would like) by June 15th. Note: Local Stay at Home orders allow us to run outdoors (observing Social Distancing guidelines).

Bonus: Runners who submit their time by June 1 will be entered into a drawing for “door prizes”.
