Walk, Run and Wag 5K

This year International Hearing Dog Inc. will be hosting our sixth annual “Walk, Run, & Wag 5K” at Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver on Saturday, July 8, 2016. This 5K is held to raise awareness as well as funds for IHDI, so that we can continue rescuing dogs from local animal shelters, training them, and ultimately placing them with hard of hearing and deaf recipients throughout the US and Canada. Each dog costs $10,000 to care for, train, certify, and place as Hearing Dogs with these individuals and we currently have 36 dogs in training. We are asking for your help as a runner or walker in this family and dog friendly event. We encourage people to run with the dogs and teams are welcome as well! Last year we hosted over 200 runners and countless more friends and family who came out to support them. We are hoping to increase both of these stats to close to 500 this year to be make this year’s “Walk, Run, and & Wag” the best one yet.

International Hearing Dog is a Denver based nonprofit that rescues unwanted shelter dogs and trains them to become Hearing Dog for the deaf and hearing impaired throughout the US and Canada.
