About Our Event

5K Trail Run


CANCELLED 2020 due to COVID-19.

The third annual Doggie Dash 5K Trail Run is a family-friendly event that features a course for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The course is a rolling, wide trail. The race will be held at the Georgia Industrial Children’s Home on North Mumford Road. The race will benefit local animal rescue groups such as Reid Rescue and Critical Care for Animal Angels. The Doggie Dash was founded and is organized by a local high school student, Sara Kate Durkee. Check below to see where you'll be running and for information about who we benefit.




Reid Rescue

Reid Rescue is a licensed (both in the state of Ga and as a 501c3) small rescue that focuses on the older dog with medical needs. We are prepared to spend months to years if necessary to rehab our dogs. Thanks to our large facility and halfway house, RR is able to offer quality of life type care for extended periods of time, and even full time care for the dogs life if necessary. We don't house in kennels, but instead a large half acre area with swimming pools, tons of toys, shade areas, sun areas, a deck and a heated and cooled "halfway house." Reid Rescue provides dogs with the love they deserve in an effort to find their forever home.
