Race Day Registration Still Open! Sign up your pup for a dog-specific race benefiting the Carrollton Animal Services and Adoption Center. The race will start at the newly constructed McInnish Dog Park in Carrollton, and will route through the sports complex for a full 5K. A shorter route will be offered to smaller or older dogs, or dogs who will still be working off some holiday weight. Don’t have a dog? You can still participate! Or swing by the Adoption Center where your new best friend is waiting for you!
