Registration Begins for 21st Annual “Run with the Big Dogs”


A Pocatello tradition returns April 21.

Discounted registration is underway for the 21st Annual Run with the Big Dogs. The event from The Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter features a 2K walk, 2K run, and a 5K run. Adult registration (13 or older) costs $25 per participant while children’s registration (12 and under) is $15 per participant. Early registration closes Saturday, April 10.

“Our race will begin an hour earlier to free your day up for other events, like the City’s Environmental Fair,” said Kim Velman, Volunteer Coordinator with Pocatello Animal Services. “We’d like to thank all of our past and future participants for making this event The Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter’s largest fundraiser. We’re looking forward to more vendors this year along with a few activities.”

Participants can register at the Pocatello Animal Shelter. Participants can save time by filling out the form found at before turning it in at the shelter. Registration includes (while supplies last) a t-shirt, bandana for the dog, and a doggy bag. Participants will also be entered for a chance to win one of many draw prizes.

The proceeds from the Run with the Big Dogs help to support the adoption programs at the shelter.
