Four-legged friends are welcome to attend all activities, making this event unlike any other in the area!  And of course because this is a "Howloween" event, participants are encouraged to come in costume if you're in the spirit!

Have you adopted a dog from Home at Last? Mail us a photo to be displayed at next year's event honoring all of the lives we've saved. Print a photo and mail to Shari McGrath, 2107 Grandy Court, Macungie, PA 18062. *Note: photos will not be returned. 

All proceeds from the 5K and Dog Walk will benefit Home at Last Dog Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. HAL is a 100% volunteer organization whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high-kill shelters and puppy mills, as well as owner-surrender dogs who need to be re-homed due to unfortunate circumstances. We are not a shelter, and we have no central location for the dogs we rescue...every dog is in a foster home until they are adopted. With our tireless and passionate work, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy mill and pet store dogs, thereby reducing the demand for, and ultimately, the supply of such dogs. After the dogs have been observed in foster homes, our devoted volunteers strive to match each dog with the perfect forever home.  100% of adoption fees then go back into the rescue to cover shelter pull fees, vet care, supplies, and various other expenses.  We hope you'll join us for a day of spirited fun and generosity for our furry friends!
