Got a dog? Like to jog? Come out to the 25th Annual Atlanta Dog Jog Saturday, May 12 in Piedmont Park! Dogs and people of all athletic levels are invited to jog or walk a one or two mile course to support two great causes – the Georgia Veterinary Medical Association Foundation and Canine Assistants, an Alpharetta-based non-profit that breeds, raises and trains working dogs for children and adults with disabilities.
The discounted advance registration deadline has passed, but you can still register at the event itself for $30 (which covers one person and one dog, though you don’t have to bring a dog to participate). Each additional dog is $15. All human participants will receive a t-shirt and dogs will receive a bandana as a token of appreciation for supporting the organizations.
Registration begins at 8am and the walk/run begins at 9 so grab your furry friend and get out there! Visit the event website for additional details.
After the run, reward Fido with some serious pampering from one of the event’s sponsors, Piedmont Bark! Located in a Amsterdam Walk, not far from Monroe Place Apartments, Piedmont Bark offers dog wash and grooming services in addition to boarding and doggy day care. They even host doggy birthday parties and several “Yappy Hours” throughout the year.
