Friends of the Shelter is a non-profit organization that funds medical care and surgeries for the homeless animals who come in to the Franklin County Animal Shelter. Their annual 5k raised funds for these worthy dogs who are in dire need of medical attention.
Dabney is a rescue at the Franklin County Animal Shelter who came in with significant injuries to one leg. She's had surgery through MedVet and continues with physical therapy to heal. Dabney perked right up as I made a funny noise to get a quick portrait.
There were dogs everywhere! It was a perfect morning, too - a little on the cool side to start and getting warmer as the sun came up. The dogs had a great time and their humans had a nice morning too.
This big guy visited just about everyone at the 5k. I didn't see him for a while and then later at the awards he was socializing with everyone again. Good boy!
We had an awesome time at the 5k for K9s. Alum Creek was a great location and it was hilarious to see dogs take a quick dip in the lake after their run.
