Coming soon to Lake Casitas! The first annual Dog Jog will be a fun event for people who love animals and want to support our local Humane Society. The idea started with three friends from Ojai who wanted to help make a difference in the lives of homeless animals in the area; Tera Pupa, Loree Pryce and Tonya Peralta wanted a fun way to bring people together and raise much needed funds for the local animal shelter. The Dog Jog is a 5k fun run/walk that will take place at Lake Casitas March 14, 2015. (Sign up at www.Active.com by January 15th to get a FREE t-shirt). There will be live music by Main Street Band, food trucks, and HSVC will have both information and education booths on site.
The Humane Society of Ventura County (HSVC) is a nonprofit private organization that receives no government funding or funds from organizations such as HSUS or ASPCA. “We rely on donations from the public and fundraising efforts such as the ‘Dog Jog’ to keep our doors open” stated Shelter Director Jolene Hoffman. “We are all very excited about this event and how it will benefit the animals at HSVC.”
