The Humane Society of Northwest Florida hosted the 3rd annual Furry Friend 5k race in Lynn Haven, April 13th.
LYNN HAVEN, Fla.-- Dog owners got the chance to run alongside their pups on the track, which was full of fun things to keep the dogs interested, like water stations and kiddie pools.
The human winners of the race received trophies, and the winning dogs were treated to some special snacks.
Penny Wisser, a race participant said, “This is just a really exciting time for the dogs out here socializing, making new friends, they were really excited to begin with and now it's starting to get a little bit old and they are ready to get out there and run!"
The attendance to this event has increased by about 50 people for each year they have held it. This year, about 175 people attended and almost 30 dogs showed up to run the 3.1 race.
