Overview

Welcome back to the 6th annual Pups 'N Pints 5k! This year's 5k will again 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 - don't forget Fido! Be healthy and be a hero to these animals in need!

This event has been such a great way to bring in much needed funds for the animals of HART and this year is no exception. Vet bills are through the roof and every time someone turns around another 50 dogs and cats need help. HART tries to do everything they can to assist as many as possible, but their resources are always so limited. With your support we can save so many more! Every donation raised will go towards HART's medical fund to help more that otherwise would never have had a chance. This year HART has dealt with multiple parvo cases, way too many heartworm treatments, older animal care, tumors, and a few accidents as well. It is never ending and the need is ever growing. Please consider fundraising for our cause when you register for this fun event. You will get your own site link to personalize and share. You can be a HERO!

While there won't be prizes for the top finishers, we will be awarding prize packages to the top three participants who bring 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 make this event as successful as possible.

This year we're having a kickoff party at Dogfish Head Alehouse on Sunday, Oct. 23rd from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM. There will be live music, raffles, and of course good food and beer! Dogfish is also generously donating 10% of all proceeds all day!

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.

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 HART. 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 fifth 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.
