Register for the 2018 Paws for your Heart 5k
October 14 at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, 10:00 am
Leesburg Veterinary Hospital is proud to be hosting our first annual 'Paws for your Heart' 5K/1K run. This dog-friendly race is a non-profit 501c-3. Proceeds from this race allow for Heartworm positive dogs that are greatly in need of treatment to be pulled out of local shelters and given a chance at life. We are working with Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA), Golden Retriever Rescue, Education, and Training (GRREAT) and Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue (SSR) to treat these dogs and help them find a forever home. Heartworm treatment can be extremely costly and prolonged so these dogs are often overlooked. With funds from this race, we can treat more of these dogs so they’re eligible for adoption taking the great strain off our local shelters. Simply put, this is a win-win for our community.
