Puppy Love 5K is a fundraiser for animal center

Valentine’s Day may come early for dog owners this weekend as they are encouraged to come out and meet others during a benefit for the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

The Puppy Love 5K Run and Walk takes place Saturday morning in Solana Beach.

The event starts at 8 a.m. with registration at 7 a.m.

“It’s a great combination for any dog lover … single or married,” says HWAC spokesman John Van Zante. “If you run or walk with your dog the Puppy Love 5K is a great way to meet new friends or find the love of your life.”

Single dog owners who registered by Feb. 1 submitted, “Meet Your Match” surveys. Compatible couples, as determined by It’s Just Lunch, will take part in the Meet Your Match contest. Judges will select the Cutest Couple (both human and canine.) Winners will receive a, “Puppy Lovers” package including roses and chocolates for the humans, toys for the dogs, and a lunch for two humans and pets.

Van Zante says that the Puppy Love 5K is a realistic goal for most people who walk or run with their dogs. The registration fee is only $35 with proceeds supporting Helen Woodward Animal Center’s programs for animals and people in-need.”

The Puppy Love 5K Run/Walk will start and end at the corner of Via de la Valle and Highway 101 in Solana Beach.

“The Puppy Love 5K will be followed by the Furry Valentine Canine Costume Contest, Doga Yoga, doggie boot camp, and canine agility in our Wagging Wellness area,” said HWAC Sponsorship Manager Nedra Abramson. “Scripps Health will provide blood pressure and cholesterol screenings. And we might even see some love connections during the Meet Your Match contest.”

Register online at www.animalcenter.org or at the corner of Via de la Valle and Hwy. 101 in Solana Beach starting at 7 a.m. Saturday morning.
