New Volunteer orientations on PAUSE

Due to Covid-19, all new volunteer orientations are canceled until 2021. Please follow us on Facebook for up to date announcements.

As soon as it's safe to set up new volunteers, we'll do so.

Current Volunteers: Contact the shelter to make sure they have runnable dogs before heading over!


The Rescue Run 2020 has been canceled. We'll be back November 2021! 

Who we are:  

We are Philly's shelter dog running club and rescue org!


What we do:

We are a 400+ person run club that runs with adoptable dogs at our partner shelters, giving the dogs exposure to the community and easing shelter stress while they await adoption.


How we SAVE lives:

We rescue dogs directly from Philadelphia's intake shelter and place them in Miler foster homes.  We also visit local races with adoptable dogs from our foster program (and partner shelters) to find homes for them and increase awareness about pet adoption and volunteering locally.
