Animal House Shelter is a non-profit, no kill shelter in Huntley. AHS was established in Barrington in 2002 and has rescued over 30,000 animals to date. We rescue all breeds of dogs and cats regardless of age or medical condition. Dash for the Dogs allows us to raise funds necessary to cover the cost of our animals’ medical expenses and overall care. Even if you can not participate in the run/walk, we invite you to create your own fundraising page to help save lives and spread awareness. There will be prizes for top fundraisers!

Our race course is certified and timed. The top three male and female finishers overall and in each age group will receive awards. Age groups: 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60 & over.​

Dogs are welcome to participate in the run or walk as long as they are leashed at all times, current on rabies and distemper vaccines, and have excellent temperament with other dogs and children. Strollers are welcome in the run and walk.
