Run For A Good Cause At The Puppy Love 5K

Puppy Love 5K

If you made a new year’s resolution to get fit, that may be seeming pretty tough right now. But if you need to sign up for a race to motivate you to train, there is a great one coming up. The Puppy Love 5K will take place February 9, 2019, at 9 a.m.

This race will start at Oleander Point at Cole Park. It’s sure to be a beautiful run. Cole Park is a great place to get outside.

If you’re not quite up for running the whole thing yet, no problem. This race is also open to walkers and even people pushing strollers as they compete. All ages are welcome.

But the best part is that leashed dogs are also invited to participate in the Puppy Love 5K. If your pet hasn’t been training along with you, sign up for the 1K Dog Run instead. It’ll still be great exercise for both of you. There will be prizes for the top 3 finishers in each division.


The proceeds from the Puppy Love 5K go to benefit PAAC. PAAC stands for People Assisting Animal Control. According to their website, the mission of this nonprofit is “to promote responsible pet ownership, improve the lives of pets in our community, and reduce the number of unwanted and stray animals entering our shelters.”

They have lots of services to try to make this happen. They offer low-cost clinics for vaccination, spaying and neutering, and treating minor illnesses in pets in the Corpus Christi area. They also offer adoption services for cats and kittens. This organization is doing great work, and you and your pet will be supporting it by singing up to run in the Puppy Love 5K.
