FURRY FRIENDS NETWORK'S
RACE FOR THEIR LIVES
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2014
GIFFORD PINCHOT STATE PARK
This year we race for Peace, Love and HOPE!
On Saturday, September 27, 2014 Furry Friends Network (FFN) will hold its 9th annual Race for Their Lives 5K trail run and 2-mile fun walk at Gifford Pinchot State Park, Conewago Day Use Area. This year we race for peace, love and HOPE and to ultimately save more lives! Your support for Race for Their Lives will not only help animals presently in need but will also make a difference in the lives of animals who need help in the future.
As we continue to pay our blessings forward, FFN has chosen the Hounds of Prison Education, HOPE Program as our Race For Their Lives 2014 honorary organization. FFN will donate 5% of net proceeds from Race for Their Lives to the HOPE Program in hopes of giving more dogs a paw up on finding families who will give them the peace and love they so much deserve!

The HOPE Program was launched in March 2005 to help more homeless animals find their way into forever homes. Sponsored by Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance (CPAA), the HOPE Program works in conjunction with the PA State Correctional Institute at Camp Hill, the MD State Correctional Institution at Roxbury and CPAA member rescues. The program pairs carefully screened inmates with needy dogs for a period of several weeks to several months of intensive training. The inmates work together with a professional trainer, prison staff and HOPE volunteers to provide the dogs with basic obedience training, socialization, behavior modification and one-on-one attention. By the time the dogs are "paroled," they have become more confident, are better behaved and are ready to start a new life on the outside as good canine citizens
Furry Friends Network is non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and relies upon private donations to help fund our rescue operation.
The official registration and financial information of Furry Friends Network may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1 (800) 732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
