About This Activity

The 5th Annual Tails on Trails 5K & 10K Walk/Run to benefit Spay Today will be held on April 2, 2016 at the beautiful State Arboretum of Virginia located at Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, VA. 

Run or walk by yourself or bring along your canine companion. Don't have a dog to run with? You can see adorable dogs that are available for adoption at the start line and on the race course. Each participant will receive an event t-shirt, water, coffee, and snacks. Proceeds benefit Spay Today and its reduced-cost spay and neuter services.

SPAY TODAY is a program of The National Humane Education Society (NHES) located near Charles Town, WV. SPAY TODAY serves as a tangible example of spaying and neutering as part of the humane solution to ending the overpopulation of homeless animals.
