GAHS is going to the dogs! Join us for of our annual Dash For Dogs 5K and Strutt Your Mutt Dog Walk and help out needy dogs in our community and beyond. Every day our caring staff and volunteers help dogs in so many ways- providing shelter, care, healthy food, a warm blanket, needed medical care and behavioral support and enrichment. Now you can help us help more dogs than ever! With our new Behavior Specialist, we’ll be providing more for dogs in need at the shelter and in our community. Be a part of this exciting growth by registering for and supporting our Dash.

Come walk or run the course along the beautiful Androscoggin Riverwalk path. This is one of the few events in Maine that allow you to also bring your dog (must be current on vaccinations and NO flex-lead leashes). There is also an option to participate virtually.
