Anywhere safe and socially distanced


A 5K race to support homeless pets

Who's Invited?


Been spending more time outdoors in quarantine? Us, too! Why not use that outdoor time to give back to pets in need?

On August 1, join fellow pet lovers for the first annual 5K for APA!. Here's how it works:

1. Sign up and save lives with your registration fee.
2. Run (or walk) your 5K on August 1 in your neighborhood, the green belt, a trail — anywhere you can be safe and socially distanced.
3. Virtually celebrate with the rest of the runners using #5KforAPA.

Registration is $25 and includes a little surprise somethin' from our friends at The ABGB, a chance to win a year's worth of Richard's Rainwater, an APA! fanny pack,* and more. But wait! For just $5 more, receive a limited edition 5K for APA! t-shirt, too.*

Proceeds will all go back to the lifesaving efforts of Austin Pets Alive!. Since COVID-19 turned our world upside down, APA! has increased its pet intake by nearly 25%, and with fewer donations. By registering for the 5K for APA!, you're giving back to the pets who need you most.

Stay tuned here for more information, including registration inclusions, giveaways, and more!

Tackling the 5K with your pup? Be sure to follow our heat precautions to keep your dog safe!

*While the pre-sale for t-shirts and fanny packs ended on July 21, your registration still gets you a Slice of Love card from the ABGB, and entry into the drawing for Richard's Rainwater, not to mention the benefit of helping pets in need!
