Since 2017, Street Dog Hero (SDH) has provided spay/neuter services to 1,251 animals, and rescued more than 1,600 dogs from neglect, hunger and abuse around the world and from overcrowded shelters in Texas, California, and Ohio. SDH also serves its neighbors in rural Oregon, sterilizing more than 500 animals across the state in 2020-21.

“Heroes On The Run is our most important fundraising event of the year. The Central Oregon community has been so supportive of Street Dog Hero, enabling our life-saving programs in areas where animals are least likely to receive care due to financial, geographic and cultural barriers,” remarked Marianne Cox, Founder of Street Dog Hero. “We’re looking forward to this community event to celebrate our success, thank our many supporters and raise critical funds so we can continue saving lives.”

The event is free to attend. Registration is required for the 5k Fun Run ($35 without event t-shirt or $40 with event t-shirt). Kids Zone and Mini-Run passes are $10.

Register by September 8 and be a street dog hero!
