Although the initial buzz of Rescue Run 2017 may have passed, we STILL find ourselves scrolling through photos marked with hashtag #rescuerun5k with a smile. These pictures show happy runners, happy rescued dogs coming back to visit, and happy shelter dogs who will continue to benefit from the work of The Monster Milers because of YOU.
