Panting for Paws 5K and Virtual Run This Year

Come join us for our 3rd annual event helping the homeless dogs and cats of the Darlington County Humane Society Shelter.

Finisher’s medal for all humans who complete the 5k. Bones and bandanas for the dog finishers and plenty of water! 

Can’t make it on that day? You can participate in our Virtual Run! You will still get your bib, tee shirt, and medal! Use the link to sign up and click on Virtual Runner.
