A 5K 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 February 20, 2021, join fellow pet lovers for the APA! Palentine's 5K. Similar to last August's 5K for APA!, here's a reminder of how it works:

1. Sign up and save lives with your registration fee.
2. Run or walk your 5K (or further, if you'd like!) on February 20 in your neighborhood, the green belt, a trail — anywhere you can be safe and socially distanced.

3. Virtually join other pet lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and runners by sharing your accomplishment on social media the day of, including in the Facebook event where you can post your times and interact with other runners.
4. Keep checking in here for updates on giveaways, t-shirts, and more.

Registration is now open and costs $30 for registration and a limited edition Palentine's 5K t-shirt, as well as to be announced giveaways and inclusions. Want to register but don't need the t-shirt? You can do that as well for $25.

Proceeds benefit the lifesaving efforts of Austin Pets Alive!. Since COVID-19 turned our world upside down, APA! increased its intake by the thousands. By registering for the APA! Palentine's 5K, you're giving back to the pets who need you most -- and celebrating National Love Your Pet Day.
