When a shelter has limited funds, they have to make really difficult decisions on how much money they can spend to heal a wounded animal. The alternative is true euthanasia (rather than killing due to resource or space limitations), and that doesn't get counted in no-kill statistics.
The no-kill Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter has a medical fund to help push the line back, to help more animals that are otherwise great pets.
Team Spiridon, the group that brings you RuffTail Runners, is a lead sponsor and is helping produce this Sunday's Woof Walk Wrun 5K, benefiting that medical fund.
The biggest thing we need are runners. We're determined to increase registrations to 300, from the 150 or so they've had in the past. So, we really need you guys to come on out. If you want to run, you'll need to register on their website - https://www.facebook.com/events/144717912357564/?fref=ts
If you can't run the race, we could use some volunteers on race day, and to staff packet pickup on Saturday, at either Subaru of Austin, near Highland Mall, or at Hill Country Running Company's Cedar Park location.
Please email us ("Contact" over there on the left sidebar), if you can volunteer.
Whatever you do, please help us spread the word.
