Dash for the Dogs is an annual fundraiser that is held to raise much needed funds for the medical bills of special needs animals here at our shelter. Animal House believes every animal deserves a chance and due to that we take on many animals with injuries and medical conditions which require extensive and expensive medical treatment. Please join us for our run/walk, donate or volunteer and help us continue our fight to give every animal a shot!

What is “Dash for Donations”?
“Dash for Donations” is a program designed for supporters of Animal House Shelter to collect tax deductible monetary donations from family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, local businesses
and fellow animal lovers for the benefit of the homeless dogs and cats of Animal House Shelter.
Don’t forget to ask your employer for a donation. Many companies offer matching gifts and will often match your personal donation.
Do I have to enter the Run/Walk to participate?
While we would love to have you enter in the 5K Run Walk or the 1 Mile Fun Run, you do not have to do that to participate in the “Dash for Donations” program. This program is being held in conjunction with the Run/Walk event on June 1st at Fel-Pro RRR Conservation Area in Cary, IL
