A pet-friendly walk-run taking place Sept. 25 in Alamo Heights will raise funds for a local program that aims to increase the number sterilized and vaccinated dogs and cats. Spay-Neuter-Inject-Protect San Antonio, a nonprofit, presents the 14th annual Race for the Rescue, beginning and ending at the Alamo Heights swimming pool, 250 Viesca Ave. The run starts at 8 a.m. with four activities: a 5K individual run for competitive runners without dogs, a 5K individual run with or without dogs, a 5K children’s walk-run with dogs and a 5K children’s run-walk without dogs. There is also a team category with a minimum of 10 runners. Entry fees vary from $25-$40. Entrants may take part in person or virtually and submit their time. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to top winners in different categories. Costumes are encouraged. Registration is available online until midnight Sept. 24 and on-site prior to the race. Visit https://runsignup.com/Race/TX/SanAntonio/SNIPSA for details. All proceeds benefit SNIPSA, an all-volunteer rescue organization founded by a group of veterinarians and other pet welfare supporters. SNIPSA provides free spay-neuter services in mainly underserved areas where there are significant populations of stray animals. SNIPSA also provides microchipping for dogs and cats. Additionally, SNIPSA’s volunteers provide foster care for adoptable dogs and cats. Visit https://snipsa.org for more information about the organization.
