2nd Annual Small Dog Race & All Dog Costume Contest

October 10 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Do you have a pup that wants to run to raise monies to save rescue dogs? Or a dog that looks cute in costumes? If so, join us on October 10 at Land-Grant in Franklinton, Columbus, Ohio.

The fun begins at noon and goes till 4 pm. Come bring your own dog to participate or simply watch others enjoy! Looking for a best furry friend?! Rescues are joining in the fun, including Franklin County Dog Shelter, Ohio Fuzzy Pawz, and more!

Event Details:
$25.00 Playful Pets Race Registration – Secures a spot for your small dog to take part in the festivities! This includes a race bandana and fun prizes for all dogs that participate! For this event, we ask that only small dogs register – any type of dog in that category is fine! In general, that means dogs of 20 lbs or less. If you are wondering if your dog’s size is OK, please message us at [email protected]

Race space is small so your doggos won’t get too worn out! The running space will be roughly 10×30′ and will be enclosed so all will be safe.

$15 Human T-Shirt Registration – Optional purchase of Rescue Race t-shirt for any human that wants one!

City Paws Home Health Costume Contest registration is FREE! Just show up to the event with your furry best friend (of any size!) dressed in costumes. Costume 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes will be given for doggies and their human friends! Registration before the event is optional but encouraged.

The event is all outdoors, with indoor access to Land-Grant available. Any local COVID protocols will be followed on the event day.
