Rascal's Run 5K/Walk/Dog Walk benefits the Animal Adoption Center (AAC), South Jersey’s non-profit, no-kill animal shelter in Lindenwold. The Animal Adoption Center provides temporary shelter and medical care to unwanted companion animals in a no-kill environment. We shelter, nurture, and support rescued animals until they find their forever homes, which over 700 of them did in 2016. The AAC also educates the community regarding the importance of spay/neuter programs, veterinary care, appropriate socialization and the promotion of thoughtful and healthy relationships between pet owners and their animals. What “no-kill “ means for AAC is that we accept no contracts with animal control, and, therefore, we never have to euthanize because we run out of room. We euthanize only if an animal is physically ill, in pain, with no hope of recovery, and at the advice of a vet. Since we receive no government funding, we exist solely on donations. If you are an animal lover, supporting us could be a great philanthropic opportunity for you. There are many ways to support AAC: through fundraisers, donation drives, and employee community service days, to name a few.
Please join us for what we expect to be an annual event.
