Run with the Dogs is on winter break. We hope to be back again in the spring. Check back for updates.
On the second Saturday of each month, Team Red Lizard opens up their weekly Saturday morning run from Foot Traffic in Lake Oswego to some new four-legged friends. Volunteers from Multnomah County Animal Shelter transport 6 or more highly adoptable dogs that could benefit from a little exercise. Runners show up to take the dogs out for our scenic 5-mile loop along Old River Road.
Our hope is that taking the dogs out for a run will exercise, socialize and introduce these fine mutts to future forever families. Likewise, we hope that having guests join us for our group run will introduce these future families to our fine running club. If you or someone you know loves dogs or is looking for a running companion, put this run on your calendar! Or, if you can’t make it to the run, stop by between 10 and noon the same day just to say hi and meet some great dogs!
This outreach is truly making a difference for these doggies. Over a dozen dogs have been adopted, and the volunteers are convinced these outreach events have been related to many more adoptions. Dogs that have been waiting for months have found homes shortly after their “Run with the Dogs” outing. As runners, we all know how a good run can give you a positive attitude!
When: 9:00 a.m. on the 2nd Saturday morning of the month.
Where: Lake Oswego PETCO (333 S. State St/Hwy 43, Lake Oswego). Look for the tent in the parking lot.
Added bonus: Noah’s Bagels generously donates bagels, and warm beverages are provided by Starbucks.
