The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire (ARLNH) is excited to announce Pet Fair will take place on September 21st, 2013 at Derryfield Park in Manchester. This day-long event will kick off with the 4th annual "My Dogs are Barking" 5k road race at 9:00am followed by the 10th annual Pet Step, a dog walk fundraiser, beginning at 11:00am. This rain or shine event promises to be fun, entertaining and mostly, a wonderful day to spend with your family and your dog!
Last year, almost 500 runners laced up their sneakers and hit the pavement, many with their four-legged friends, for the "My Dogs are Barking" 5k road race. Karen Moynihan, Director of Major Events at the ARLNH expects even more runners this year. "We are excited that the race course starts at Derryfield Park and winds through east Manchester this year," Moynihan says. "It will be an enjoyable race, not just to run, but to watch as well!"
After the race runners can enjoy some delicious food and visit the exhibitor booths. There will be activities for the kids as well as dog demos and a petting zoo!
The runners are encouraged to hang out and watch the 10th annual Pet Step dog walk which begins at 11:00am. Fundraising teams and individuals show their support for homeless pets by raising necessary funds. Great prizes are given to individual fundraising leaders as well as teams.
