Race for the Rescues

On Saturday, October 24th, OC Animal Care was thrilled to participate in the 10th Annual Race for the Rescues adoption event at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The event included a 5K, a 10K, a Kid’s Fun Run and a 1K Dog Walk that raised $426 thousand for the 37 animal welfare organizations who participated. Attendees had a blast racing, enjoying live entertainment, participating in silent auctions, having their faces painted, visiting pet psychics, and more. One highlight of this event was when OC Animal Care’s pups strutted their stuff down the runway in the pet fashion show. OC Animal Care adopted out 7 dogs on the day of the event, but all 9 were adopted by rescue groups. OC Animal Care raised over $2000 and plans to use the money towards the new Rabitat. Our top earners and wonderful volunteers, Amy Sherbanee, raised $805 for the shelter, and Cindy Callon, raised $550! A special thank you to everyone who participated in Race for the Rescues and the Rescue Train for organizing this event.
