Additional info

Run to save an animal's life! Each and every runner that participates in the Fast and the Furriest helps raise money for the Companion Animal Care Fund. The Companion Animal Care Fund offers financial assistance to clients of Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital who have an animal in need of emergency or immediate life-saving care. The fund is entirely need-based and is reserved solely for members of the community. Additionally, the fund may be applied to any animal presented to the hospital, including companion animals, exotic species, large animals, and small ruminants. Without the financial assistance provided by the fund, many clients would be faced with the difficult choice of declining care for their animal or relinquishing ownership. The Companion Animal Care Fund provides hope for both owners and their animals in need. Please help us save the lives of more animals with your participation and support!
