About This Activity

Come join us at an event that will be fun for both you and your dog! Trails for Tails includes a 5K run and one mile walk along the scenic riverfront and Katy Trail.  There will be pet contests, a raffle, and many exhibitors.

The event will be on Sunday, September 7th at Frontier Park in St. Charles, MO.

Activities are from 9am to noon. The entry fee is $25 before August 15th and includes a t-shirt. Teams of three or more save $5 per member. Registration after August 15th will be $30.

When you register, you can choose to become a fundraiser and you can help even more shelter animals by collecting pledges online from friends and family. If you raise $200+ you’ll automatically become part of the honorary "Life Savers Team" and will receive a special gift and recognition at the event. Money collected by the Life Savers Team will be matched up to $3,000!  Let your friends and family know the donation can be doubled!!

Creating a team of three or more is a great way to save money on your registration, so invite your friends, family, social networks and coworkers!  


A note about teams: When creating a team, if anyone on the team will be raising money, the Team Captain must choose to set up the team as a fundraising team. For more details or questions, email
