Support a good cause while having fun! Join us for the 6th annual 5K and 1Mile event, benefiting DFW Labrador Retriever Rescue Club.  We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that operates solely on private donations.  Our average cost per dog is over $600, yet our adoption fee is only $275.  Our adoption fees are the same, regardless of the past health of the dog.  In order to make up for the difference between the actual cost of the dog and our adoption rate, we rely on special events & fundraisers to help supplement the costs.
