Woof, Walk & Wrun and Cat Nap Challenge April 23
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter invites you to participate in our 8th Annual Woof Walk & Wrun 5K presented by WCRAS. Join us for a timed USATF Certified (TX12050ETM) 5K run or an easy one mile stroll with or without your dog in beautiful Berry Springs Park and Preserve. This event, on April 23rd starting at 8:30 a.m. in Georgetown, TX, raises funds for the urgent outside veterinary care needed by the sick and injured dogs and cats brought to our shelter.

Not a fan of walking, running, or getting up early? Register for the Cat Nap Challenge and Save Lives by Sleeping In.  Pledge to sleep in on April 23rd, wear your Cat Nap sleep mask and brag about your generous slumbers on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #WilcoCatNap. To register for the Woof Walk & Wrun or the Cat Nap Challenge, visit the shelter’s webpage at http://wilcopets.org. 

For the past six years, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) has been functioning as a no-kill shelter, striving to save every healthy and treatable companion animal who enters our facility. Last year, WCRAS served close to seven thousand lost and abandoned animals and spent over $50,000 treating and healing the injured. Although we are a government facility, we are not funded to provide this care and treatment. We rely solely on the donations, provided by supporters like you, to our medical fund.
