Race Information

Our largest annual fund-raising event, Race for The Rescues Southern California began thirteen years ago and has raised 4 million dollars to help animals in need. These critical funds enable hard working local, non-profit animal welfare organizations to continue their life-saving work.

The event includes a 5K,10K, Kid’s Fun Run and 1K Dog Walk.  We also have dog and cat adoptions and send the city shelter trucks back empty year after year.
