Welcome Runners

Founded in 2017 while training for the Chicago Marathon, our goal has always been – and continues to be – to raise awareness, education, and often much needed funding to help find homeless dogs & pets their “furever” homes. Specifically, as animal lovers ourselves, the human running community is in a unique position to quickly lead the conversation and actively spread the word … leveraging its collective & generous charitable nature!

We partner with local Seacoast, New Hampshire & New England shelters to assist in matching up rescue services in the region to place abandoned and surrendered dogs & pets in loving, adoptive homes. Foster homes are utilized to care for the pets that are saved prior to their placement in their forever homes. RunForPets.com is committed to helping to save these pets by supporting and utilizing shelter facilities and a foster-based network of volunteers – sharing the vision to place that life with a permanent, responsible, adoptive home.

Fellow runners, please join & support our ongoing commitment and efforts to promote awareness, education, and fundraising for an existing local animal welfare network … resulting in productive and positive rescue experiences!
