IRONDames Love running with our puppies! They are great training companions and it’s a fantastic way to keep them healthy and fit. Check out this doggie geared 5K Walk/Run organized by IRONDame Caron Shepley in support of The Humane Society of Durham (HSDR) this Sunday, June 24 2012.
Three years ago, the Durham Shelter was destroyed by a tragic fire. Recently a new shelter was built and it is designed to be an inviting place of hope, love and life for both animals and people. There is enough space to house more animals in a physically and mentally healthy environment. Although some money has been raised to subsidize the cost of the new shelter, not all costs were covered leaving a sizable mortgage that still needs to be paid. The Humane Society does not receive any formal government assistance. The money comes from fundraising, donations, memberships and bequeaths.
The Furry Friends 5K is Caron’s favourite Road Race!
