Lodi Veterinary Hospital’s 1st Annual Doggie Dash

Enjoy a two mile run/walk around Lodi, along with multiple fun family activities, hosted by the Lodi Veterinary Hospital as a fundraiser for The Second Chance Fund. The Doggie Dash will start and end at the Lodi Fairgrounds, along with other activities. RAIN or SHINE!

*Remember to start training for the Doggie Dash now! Exercising with your pet is a great way for you and your pet to bond and live a healthier life.

The Second Chance Fund is a program to give severely sick or injured animals within our community a second chance at life. Just in the last year the program has accepted twenty-eight animals for rehabilitation, many of which were placed in new homes. Through fundraising we would be able to help even more animals.
