First Annual DC Doggie Dash is March 19 in Tallahassee

The Corrections Foundation invites runners to participate in the First Annual Department of Corrections Doggie Dash on March 19 at SouthWood. Proceeds from the 5K and One Mile Fun Run will benefit the Department's six dog obedience programs, where inmates train shelter dogs and make them more adoptable. Two of these programs train dogs from the Tallahassee Animal Service Center. Proceeds will also be used to purchase GPS collars for K-9 Bloodhounds who are instrumental in finding lost children, elders and assisting local law enforcement in our communities. Vendors are invited to advertise or sell their wares for a mere $20 fee and door prize; some of our inmate trained dogs will be available for adoption; and we'll also be having K-9 Handler demonstrations after the races, so it will be a real family affair. Register today online at raceit.com or contact info@correctionsfoundation.org or call 850-410-4475 for more information. Please leave your pets at home so we can showcase ours for placement in forever homes!
