WilCo animal shelter raising funds through 5K


Dogs and their owners are invited to the fourth annual Wolf, Walk and Wrun 5K benefiting the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. Proceeds from the April 14 fundraiser help pay for treatments for dogs that are brought to the shelter with treatable injuries.

Through April 12, participants can register online for the race, which will take place at Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, 3005 County Road 175, Leander. Dogs must be at least 8 weeks old with proof of vaccinations to enter the race. Retractable leashes are not allowed, and there is a limit of one dog per runner.

The price per runner is $30 for the 5K. The event also offers a 1-mile walk for $25. Pet registration is $7.

Money raised from registration fees will go to Jane’s Fund, a program within WCRAS named for late County Commissioner Judge Jane Tableriou. The fund pays for outside veterinary treatment for injured animals who might otherwise be euthanized, according to the organization.
