Why is your paw-ticipation so important?

By supporting Verona Street Animal Society and Rochester Animal Services, you are helping animals get the second chance they deserve. Just your registration for this event will spay/neuter a male cat or feed a cat for one month.  Think of the impact an additional donation would have!  All funds raised through The Fast & The Furriest® event directly impact the animals in our community by:

  • Providing food, shelter, enrichment and medical care at the shelter
  • Promoting adoption, lost and found, and spay/neuter programs
  • Supporting under-served communities by providing access to pet resources

When setting up your fundraising team WHILE registering for the race, make sure to set up your own individual or team fundraiser on the donation page!
