Rent-a-Dog during Animal Humane’s Doggie Dash & Dawdle fundraiser

Doggie Dash & Dawdle is Animal Humane New Mexico’s largest fundraising event and is taking place on Sunday, November 3, 2019. This year they are striving to reach their $325,000 fundraising goal.

Marketing director Karolyn Winge and fundraising events and merch associate manager Madison Beets explain how to register for the event.

Madison also shows off Duke of Earl, a 5-year-old American Pitbull and shepherd mix. Duke is easy going and loves long walks and is already housebroken.

Rent-a-Dog is known as Doggie Dash’s most popular attractions as guests can rent a furry friend to attend the Dash or Dawdle races with you. For $10 you can enjoy the event with an adoptable canine from Animal Humane.

Not only will you help homeless dogs socialize, but you might also just find your own perfect pet to adopt.

More than 4,000 human and 2,000 canine participants are expected to attend this event that will feature a 5K humans only dash, a 5K dash with canines, and a 1 mile dawdle for all ages and dog breeds. Proceeds from the event will support the more than 10,000 homeless and at-risk pets the organization helps annually.

The event will also include food trucks, live music performances, a Beer Garden, and Doggie Carnival and Barketplace.

The 37th Annual Doggie Dash & Dawdle will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Balloon Fiesta Park.
