Welcome to our second annual Howl-O-Run! This year, we’re taking the event virtual, so get ready to enjoy the fall colors and raise money to save the animals you love!
We rescue hundreds of cats and dogs in Hancock County, Maine, every year, and COVID-19 has done nothing to slow that down. We invite all who can to register for $20 and run a 5K for the animals that need us most, these homeless animals that we provide shelter and care for during the transition of finding them furever homes.
You can do more than register, though. If you choose a sponsor goal and want friends and family who won’t be running to put money on you to complete your race, you can! Just tell us the amount you want to raise, and we can even create the shareable form for you to send out to friends and family on social media and email so they can donate to the animals directly through you.
We have prizes for the top two runners that earn the most in sponsorship money, so make sure to get the word out there that you’re running and let us know your goal so we can broadcast it on our pages as well! On October 31, our two highest earners will be dubbed the Top Dogs and win prizes!
We will also be running a photo contest in conjunction with our 5K as we look for the best costumes. You can enter your photo into our contest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by tagging @spcahcme on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram so we can see your participation photo. It doesn’t cost anything to enter! Then from October 17 through 31, we will run a photo contest here on our website where people can donate to vote for their favorites in three categories.
We’ll be giving out awards to winners in the following categories:
Best Pet Costume (any pet species)
Best Kid Costume (children 12 and under)
Best Adult Costume (ages 13 and up)
Winners of the photo contest will be decided on October 31!
Let’s have a howling good time this year!
