Humans, dogs gather for Humane Society 5K Run/Walk

Posted: Updated:

The Humane Society of Harrisburg held its annual 5K Run/Walk on Saturday to help our four-legged friends.

Hundreds of supporters and their canine pals participated in the run, now in its 16th year.

The 5K is usually held at Wildwood Park, but after the fiery diesel crash from earlier in the month led to the park closing for cleanup, organizers moved the run to the Humane Society's shelter on Grayson Road.

Despite the location change, it was still a great turnout.

"We usually see about 300 participants," said Executive Director Amy Kaunas. "We haven't added up everything yet, but before the event happened we had 200 people registered, and we raised over $20,000 online."

Those donations will go to the shelter animals' care and upkeep.
