The inaugural Woof Woof 5K Run/Walk over Pet Cancer raised $44,000 to benefit the Blue Buffalo Pet Cancer Research Foundation, Savannah’s Hope Chest Foundation, Savannah Area Pet Rescue Agencies and Jacob G. Smith Elementary School.
The event was held on Nov. 2, at Habersham Village and Ardsley Park in Georgia.
“This was such a great event, bringing awareness to the issue of pet cancer and memorializing our pets,” Jeff Manley, co-owner of TailsSpin, said.
The Woof Woof 5K Run/Walk also set out to break the Guinness World Record of Most Dogs in a Costumed Parade.
“We had about 500 people registered,” Manley said. “However, the count of dogs in costumes of at least two pieces ended up at 194. We are confident that we can break this record at next year’s Woof Woof 5K.”
