Overview

Welcome to the 4th Annual Pups 'N Pints 5k! Clearly 2020 has been something else and things will be a little different this year, but none of that is going to get in the way of our fun or support for rescue animals. This year's 5k will be all virtual and you'll have about a week to complete it. No need to get up at the crack of dawn and decide how many layers to bring. Run, walk, strut, or push that stroller anywhere you please and at any time that works for you! Get your friends and family to sign up and go as a group (with proper social distancing, of course) - don't forget Fido! Be healthy and be a hero to these animals in need!

Update | 10.14.20

Wow! Due to popular demand, we sold out of the first run of swag! Not to worry though - more is on the way. Starting October 14th, everyone that registers will have their awesomeness shipped in November after we receive our second run of items. Register now and you'll still be able to fundraise and participate in this event and help save more lives!

If you registered before October 14th and chose to pick up your swag, we're happy to announce that in-person pickup is scheduled for Saturday, October 24th and Sunday October 25th from 9AM - 11AM at Dogfish Head Alehouse in Fairfax!

While there won't be prizes for the top finishers, we will be awarding an amazing prize to the runner that brings in the most donations! After you register sign in to your account and create a personalized fundraising page to share with all of your supporters to help help make this event as successful as possible.

COVID-19 has hit everyone hard. Thankfully through your support, the rescue animals of HART can rest easier knowing you're there to help make a difference in their lives. This event might be virtual, but there are so many real dogs and cats out there that need our help.

Everyone who registers will receive an awesome race t-shirt, event pint glass, and sticker with 100% of all registration fees benefitting the animals of HART! Other surprises may appear too, so sign up, get up off that couch, and do good to yourself and so many deserving animals!

When you register for the 5K, you will have an opportunity to become a "fundraiser" and set up a customizable page to share with your supporters. An incredible prize will be awarded to the top fundraiser. Every pledge, large or small, will make a difference.

Your support will help us to raise the vital dollars needed to save even more animals in need. This year, there are no set packages and your tax-deductible sponsorship of any amount will help HART to continue their life-saving work and bring more dogs and cats to safety.

About Pups 'N Pints

Pups 'N Pints was started in 2013 by Thom and Carolyn Jones to raise money for animal rescue to honor the memory of Marigold, whom they had adopted. From 2013 to 2016, Pups 'N Pints grew from a three hour "give back" night at Dogfish Head Alehouse to an all-day party raising funds and celebrating all things animal rescue. In 2017, Pups 'N Pints grew yet again to include a 5k, now in its fourth year. Pups 'N Pints events have raised almost $100,000 for rescue.

When we adopted Marigold, we were not looking for a second dog. Something about her charmed both of us though and we brought her home to her big sister Darcy. Marigold was a spunky dog and liked to run laps around the back yard. She had the funniest habit of chasing a squirrel and upon realizing she couldn't catch it, grabbing the nearest toy (several of which were always in our yard), killing it and the looking up at the squirrel as if to say 'ok, you're next!' When she got really happy, she would bounce across the yard, just like Pepe Le Pew in the Bugs Bunny cartoons. It was adorable. When she wanted comfort she would jump up on the couch next to me and I'd put my arm around her. She liked to lay with her front paws crossed. She had the best personality and most people who met her loved her immediately. One day we took her to the vet for a routine checkup before leaving town and we were told that she had lymphoma. We tried chemo but it just wasn't working and finally we thought it would be best to send her to the Rainbow Bridge. She was only 8 years old and we thought we'd have more time. We still think of her and miss her. There will be other dogs but there will never be another dog like Marigold. We wanted a way to say goodbye and honor her memory and we couldn't think of a better way than to raise some money for the group that brought us together. Thus, Pups 'N Pints was born. It's gotten bigger each year and I like to think Marigold would be happy about that.
