Run for Pups Virtual Race Program

The third part of our mission statement is to “share our blessing with people and pups in need.” We recently decided the best way to fulfill this mission was to start a virtual race program. We depend on runners like you to spread the word and help us Run for Pups. 

The amount donated varies from race to race. We typically donate in one of two ways; either 5-10% of profits for a particular race or we sponsor specific dog(s) and give a flat or monthly donation. Click our "Run for Pups" tab to get more information about race-specific donations or sponsorships.

So far, we've donated to Charming Pet Rescue in Boerne, Texas, and Green Heart Rescue in Boise, Idaho. Texas still has "kill" shelters, and Charming offers a second chance to countless abused, abandoned, or neglected dogs. They save dogs from kill shelters giving them opportunities to find a forever home. Green Heart Rescue provides a second chance for senior, hospice, and hard-to-place dogs.

As the program grows, we want to expand and help other charity organizations. We are accepting applications for collaboration opportunities with other dog rescues. If you would like to discuss this opportunity to raise money for your shelter, please email us about your charity. 

RunPups mission statement is threefold:
• Inspire an active lifestyle with your dog
• Provide products to enhance your active lifestyle
• Share our blessing with people and pups in need

Our Goal is Transparency 
If your thinking the donations to date are small—you’re right! This program is new and evolving, but when charitable contributions are involved, transparency is key. We limit advertising for virtual races because it’s incredibly costly and hinders our ability to donate. We depend on you to spread the word and join our mission to help people and pups in need. Together we can increase donations and make this program a success.
