This is a year of celebration! Therapy K-9 Rex, the inspiration of RexRun For PAWSitivity 2023 was joined by his brother, Zeke and his nephew, Riley! In April, therapy K-9's Bear and Otis joined the pack!

Come and join us in celebrating National Dog Day with a family fun filled day! Our 5K Trail run begins at 8am and is followed by the 5K Trail walk (with your dog) and a Kids Run. After that, you can enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast at the Flippin' Flapjacks food truck! All day long, we will have K-9 training demonstrations and the ASCO Mounted Patrol will gallop in! Don't miss our dog costume contest followed by a silent and live auction! The Kids Zone will have face painting and a balloon artist! The vendors in the Marketplace will be handing out giveaways throughout the event! Dogs are welcome inside of the event area as long as they are well behaved and on a 6' leash.

K-9 Rex is a two-year-old black Labrador therapy dog. He and his fellow K-9's with their handlers go to local schools to primarily offer comfort to students with special needs. Many are in crisis and are dealing with stress, anxiety and depression. All net profits go to the law enforcement K-9's through the 501(c)3 nonprofit, Back The Blue K-9 Force, to purchase K-9's and their protective gear as well as provide funding for their medical needs. Apprehension K-9's trained in narcotics, explosives, and electronics detection, are also funded by Back The Blue K-9 Force. Several of the K-9's will be at RexRun For PAWSitivity 2023!
