Get Registered for GAHS’ Virtual Dash for Dogs on April 26th through May 3rd!

UPDATE April 1, 2020

Dear Friends,

The 2020 Dash for Dogs is going virtual! Due to the recommendations surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the government’s mandate around no public gatherings, we’ve made the decision to modify the 7th Annual Dash for Dogs 5k scheduled for April 26. This was not an easy decision, but our priority is the safety of our community, including all our participants, staff, volunteers, and pets.

So what now? Get signed up to join the fun! To register, click here.

Wondering what a virtual Dash for Dogs will be? Well, it will be a bit of everything! Folks can still run the actual course in Lewiston and post their time, or they could walk or run around their neighborhood and post a video. You can also get creative and post a video of indoor or outdoor exercise with your dogs, your cats, your kids, your neighbors (at least 6 feet away!) or whatever you can come up with- the more creative the better! Videos will be posted through the week on the Facebook event page and there will be winners for People’s Choice based on FB likes, The Shelter Favorite as voted on by shelter staff, and best dress pet photo or video. So get creative, have fun, and raise important funds for animals who need your help.

SHIRTS: Those wanting to order a shirt can still do so until 4/24. We will work on a pick-up system here at the shelter and be in touch to schedule pick up times.

On behalf of all of us at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, we thank you for your continued support. Donations received through events like this help us to save more lives and positively impact the lives of thousands of animals each year. Your support makes a difference.
