The Turkey Trot!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and for the 7th year in a row a team from the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter will be participating in our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Burbank Turkey Trot!

Like everything else in 2020, this year’s Turkey Trot is going to be a little different.  Since we can’t run as a group, it will be a virtual run and our team members will be running or walking their distances on their own.

It was a rainy team photo last year!

Members of the team raise funds by asking friends, family, coworkers and the community to sponsor their run. Every dollar donated goes directly towards helping the animals in our care.  Funds raised will go towards life-saving surgeries and other procedures, medicines and everything else our furry friends at the shelter need to get a second chance.

Bonnie & Clyde: Official Mascots of the 2020 Turkey Trot!

We know times are tough.  If you are unable to donate, we understand.  But if you are able to help, every bit helps and no amount is too small.  If you can help, please donate through our Crowdrise page at: charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/running-them-home-2020  You can donate to any of our team members, or to our official mascots Bonnie & Clyde, a bonded pair of Husky beauties looking for their forever homes!

In appreciation of every dollar donated, the team all be out running/walking their distances Thanksgiving morning.  As we say, “you do the donating, we do the sweating.”

Thank you for your support!
