Join Us for Doggie Dash 25

SAT., SEPT. 6 • 9 A.M.

A 5K Event at the Boulder Reservoir

Everyone agrees that Doggie Dash is just a ton of fun! But there is a more serious purpose behind this animal-friendly event—raising critical funds to support the animals at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. So whether you’re running with your favorite four-legged friend or a group of two-legged friends, you can help us reach our goal of $100,000!

Our Events

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley hosts and participates in several events every year to raise money for the animals in our care, increase awareness of our mission and to have a whole lot of tail-wagging fun.

Our largest event of the year is our Puttin' On The Leash Gala. Attendees dine on gourmet food and drinks and have the chance to snag some amazing items, trips and more in our silent and live auctions.

Doggie Dash is an annual fundraiser where humans and canines come together for a 5K run or  walk held at the Boulder Reservoir. Enjoy a scrumptious pancake breakfast, pet-related booths, vendors and much more!

Holiday Family and Pet Portraits is a much-anticipated event that gears up before the end-of-the-year holidays. Bring your friends, family and pets for a private sitting with a professional photographer. View your photos the same day to purchase digital copies of one, two, or all the shots.
