About This Activity

A fun way to help the pets of Pflugerville.  Our organization, Pflugerville Pets Alive, works with our local animal shelter to provide assistance with items that are desperately needed to care for the animals that come into the shelter either as strays or owner surrenders.

Come join us for the First Annual Pflugerville Pets Alive! Dog Jog 5k run in Pfluger Park on November 8th at 8:00 am. This is not your every day 5k, you can participate whether you have a dog or not. Your support will help PPA volunteers to continue to provide medical support and help find homes for the many homeless pets looking for that perfect home. Please come join us, invite everyone you know and help us make this 1st annual Dog Jog a huge success!

After the Dog Jog, there will be various events and pfamily pfun. There will be vendors, prizes, games and lots of fun for everyone, two and four legged !

Event details and schedule

Things to know about the event -

This is a family-friendly, pet-friendly event that is designed to promote awareness of the many homeless pets in our own community and to raise funds to help continue the work of PPA. Registration includes a t-shirt until supplies are exhausted. You can order extra t-shirts during the registration process if you would like.

We ask that all dogs be well-mannered and not leash reactive or aggressive to others. We ask that you DO NOT use a retractable leash to avoid any tangles. We ask that all dogs be current on their vaccinations so that we can protect the other dogs and their owners. We ask that you do not bring any females in heat for obvious reasons.

The Dog Jog 5k will begin promptly at 8 am. Please allow ample time to find parking and to get to the starting line.
