The race will take place today May 14 at Eastwood MetroPark in Dayton.

Events kick off with a 5k race that you can do with your furry friend. After the race will be a one-mile walk open to everyone.

“All of our programs and services are funded through donations by individuals, companies, and grants. This is why events such as the Furry Skurry 5K are so critical to our organization. Your support is helping us impact thousands of animals right in our community,” Brian Weltge, president and chief executive officer of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton said.

Children, dogs, and superhero costumes are all welcomed, the humane society said.

Registration for the race is now open on their website.
