MSPCA-Angell’s “Fast and Furriest” 5K Run, Walk, Wag Set for May 20!

Sponsors, Runners, Walkers and Dogs will Lace up and Hit the Streets in Somerville

BOSTON, May 14, 2018 – The MSPCA-Angell’s Fast and Furriest Run, Walk, Wag 5K is expected to draw some 1,500 runners and walkers—and hundreds of dogs—to Baxter Park at Assembly Row in Somerville, Mass. for the third annual fun run on Sunday, May 20th.


The popular community event features a timed 5K fun run, a shorter walk and a “Ducky Dash” kids’ fun run—each featuring canines, of course.  Last year’s event raised $185,000 for animal protection and veterinary programs at the MSPCA.

All funds raised during the 2018 run benefit the tens of thousands of animals served every year by the MSPCA’s three adoption centers, hospitals and other animal protection programs.
