Fast and Furriest Fitness Challenge

Thank you all for participating in our Fast & Furriest Fitness Challenge! We look forward to seeing you all next year!

Watch the drawing for the Peloton Plus and other prizes here!

Here is your chance to raise funds for animals in need and enter to win a peloton plus!

This year, our annual Fast and Furriest 5K has a fresh new format as the Fast and Furriest Fitness Challenge! This year’s event has gone virtual and will feature a sweet opportunity to win entries for a drawing for a Peloton Plus*! Never has fundraising for animals been more exciting – and motivating.

The More Money You Raise, The More Entries You Earn!

Raise $1000 or more and you’ll be entered for a chance to win your very own peloton plus. For every additional $250 you raise, you receive another entry. For every $1000 you raise, you receive more bonus entries.

Our virtual event will take place over the next few months,  and though we might not be able to gather together to run a 5K for the animals, we can still connect online in our exclusive Facebook group to champion each other as we train at home, raise some much needed dollars for the animals and programs of the MSPCA and compete to win the ultimate in at-home workout equipment: a shiny new Peloton!


Fundraise $250 or more and we’ll enter you in a drawing to win fabulous gift cards to places like Grub Hub and Marathon Sports. Go a bit further and raise $1,000 or more and you’ll also earn a 2021 Fast & Furriest Fleece Jacket, in addition to a chance to win a Peloton!

Check it all out, get started – and kickstart your fundraising today!


*Official sweepstakes rules can be found here for the general public; if you are MSPCA-Angell Staff or immediate family, please click here for rules.


We’re going virtual!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Fast and Furriest 5K will be held virtually. Between now and Sunday May 31st, you can run, walk, or wag with your dog to help animals in need.

Choose your course: on the road, in the park, on the trail, or even on your treadmill!

Choose your pace: whether you run, walk, hop, canter, skip, or jump, what matters is that you are helping animals!

Ask friends and family to support your effort! Once you register, you’ll be able to fundraise, helping the MSPCA-Angell continue providing essential services to homeless, sick, or injured animals in need. Raise $100, and we will send you a race medal for you AND your dog! Raise even more, and you will be eligible for great prizes!

Share your training and race day on social!  Hashtag yourself with #MSPCAFastandFurriest and we might even feature your pet in a future social media post or marketing piece!

Now more than ever, the animals need you! Every dollar you raise will make a difference!
