NEW CHECK-IN & START/FINISH LINE: We've moved one parking lot over at the lake. Check-in and the Start/Finish line of in-person events is at Sailor's Point at beautiful Peace Valley Park in Chalfont, PA. (Not at Pavilion 3/4). Map it using 795 New Galena Rd, Chalfont, PA 18914.

Pre-registration for in-person events ends at midnight on October 27. Walk-up registrations accepted the morning of the event beginning at 8:00am.


You're invited to help make the 14th Annual Black Cat 5K & 1 Mile Walk our best year yet for the animals. Proceeds from this event support the Bucks County SPCA's work to rescue and re-home animals in need.

We've moved the start/finish to Sailor's Point to make check-in easier and to accommodate more animal-loving runners and walkers. Dogs cannot run with you in the 5K but they are welcome on the 1 mile fun walk. Costumes are encouraged for people and pets. Each year we bring a black cat who is available for adoption at the event. Let our tiny puma inspire your run or walk!

Don't live nearby? Join us virtually. Run your favorite 5K route or take your four-footed friend for a walk. Make a difference wherever you are, and please share your photos!


Create an Individual Fundraiser as an easy way to raise more funds for the animals. Join with friends or family to form a Team Fundraiser. Inspired by your pet(s)? You can customize your fundraiser with photos and a few lines about who you are running or walking in honor of. Cross-post it to Facebook and you'll reach your goal in no time. Need more incentive? The top Individual and Team Fundraisers will be invited for a personal behind-the-scenes shelter tour to meet the animals and learn about our lifesaving work. Meowza! What are you waiting for?
