People can participate in a competitive 5K race or a leisurely fun run and walk with their dog. Then, families are invited to hang out and enjoy six activity zones throughout the park, including dog adoptions, Dock Dogs® diving competitions, and health and wellness services for pets. Participants can sign-up now at Paws.CharlestonAnimalSociety.org.
Celebrity Paws in the Park is hosting the world famous Dock Dogs® dog diving competitions in the event’s Canine Sports Arena. Even non-professional canine athletes will be able to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
There will also be special stage shows with “Travis & Friends” that will teach kids how to be their best selves around dogs. Animal Planet star, celebrity dog trainer, and winner of the hit reality show Greatest American Dog, Travis Brorsen, will be live on stage for these fun-filled educational segments.
“When Charleston Animal Society asked me to be a part of its inaugural Celebrity Paws in the Park, I could not resist,” said Brorsen. “We’re taking expertise from my show My Big Fat Pet Makeover to create an exciting Couch to 5K Training Program where people working with their dogs can get fit together with the goal of participating in the 5K fun run or walk on March 19th.”
Friends of Charleston Animal Society are encouraged to create a fundraising team or fundraise as an individual. Competitors in both the 5K race and the fun run will win prizes based on their times and organized team themes. Fundraising teams and individuals will earn prizes based on the amount of funds raised. All money raised will go to lifesaving care to thousands of animals each year at Charleston Animal Society.
