The 2014 Dog Jog will be this Saturday at its new location in front of the White Rock United Methodist Church, 580 Meadow Lane, across from the entrance to Overlook Park.

Race check-in, T-shirt and informational packet pick-up begins at 8 a.m. T-shirts may have to be mailed. Race prizes and awards will be given for the fastest runners, random walkers and dogs in all manner of fun categories. Registrants will get an event T-shirt with a logo designed by local sixth grader Katie Laintz and a packet filled with entertaining and educational dog-related information.
The fee for the first adult or child 12 years and older is $25. Additional adults or older children are $15 each and younger children are $5 each.
Registration forms are available at the Friends of the Shelter website at lafos.org/dogjog, or at the local businesses such as Pet Pangaea, Animal Clinic of Los Alamos, Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital and CB Fox. Participants may also register on race day.
From 9–10:30 a.m., local veterinarians will be offering a microchip clinic for dogs and cats for a reduced fee of $20. No pre-registration is needed for the microchip clinic.
The Dog Jog is coordinated by the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club, Mountain Canine Corps and the Atomic City Roadrunners as a fundraising benefit for the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter.
