The 12th annual "Race For The Rescues," is looking for a wide variety of donations for our silent auction. Donations are tax deductible and help save the lives of homeless dogs, cats and horses. We are looking for: appliances, hotel stays, tickets to shows and sporting events, spa treatments, gift certificates, gift baskets, art work, pet services or products, custom jewelry and unique experiences.
This year's race is Saturday, October 14th, 2017 at the world famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena and hosted by Emmy award winning actress Jane Lynch. The Race includes a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run and 1K Kids' Fun Run and Dog Walk that will raise funds for 33 local animal welfare dedicated to caring for unwanted and injured animals in Southern California. These animals need our help and we need yours. The event is hosted by The Rescue Train, a no-kill, non-profit animal rescue and the proceeds from the auction go directly to the homeless animals in their care.
Race For The Rescues is a unique, 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia. Our mission is to unite welfare organizations to fight pet overpopulation and save as many animal lives as possible. By creating this fundraising platform we help animal non-profits raise much needed funds to continue their life-saving efforts. We develop and share leadership skills and tools with innovative ideas to help homeless animals and to make our world a kinder place.
