Families and strollers welcome. Lenox Park, Brookhaven.

Join us for the 6th Annual Ahimsa House Walk, Wag, N’ Run 5K race and 1k Fun Run on Saturday, August 26, 2017 in Lenox Park in Brookhaven. The proceeds benefit Ahimsa House, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the links between domestic violence and animal abuse. Anywhere in Georgia and at no charge, Ahimsa House provides emergency pet safe housing, veterinary care, pet-related safety planning, legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line, outreach programs, and other services to help the human and animal victims of domestic violence reach safety together.

To date: Ahimsa House has provided over 50,000 nights of safe, confidential shelter for pets in need. Ahimsa House relies on individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorships. We are run almost entirely on volunteer labor and receive many in-kind donations of goods and services, making us highly cost-effective.

Join our efforts to help people and pets escape domestic violence by participating in Walk, Wag, N’ Run. All proceeds go directly to help Ahimsa House provide these critical services. You can register to run, form a team and help raise donations, become an event sponsor, or just learn more by visiting www.ahimsahouse.org
