On your mark, get set, wag. Dogs and their human companions will gather at Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock on the morning of April 27, to run the five-kilometer course or walk the two-mile course in the annual Dog Jog.
Race prizes and awards will be given for the fastest runners, random walkers and dogs in all manner of categories.
Coordinated by the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club, the Mountain Canine Corps and the Atomic City Roadrunners, the Dog Jog is a fundraising event for the Friends of the Shelter.
Friends of the Shelter is a non-profit organization that finds volunteers and helps purchase needed items and vet services for the homeless dogs and cats in northern New Mexico.
The time is now for early bird 2013 Los Alamos Dog Jog registration.
Early bird entry fees are $20 for adults and $5 for kids. Participants registering now will save $5 off of the entry fee for the event if submitted on or before April 7.
Participants will receive an event T-shirt with a logo designed by local fifth grader Kirsten Carrara and a packet filled with dog-related information.
Anyone interested in joining can get entry forms at the Friends of the Shelter website, lafos.org, or at Los Alamos businesses, including Pet Pangaea, Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital and Animal Clinic of Los Alamos.
