Thanks to all of our sponsors and volunteers for making Tails on the Trail a success!

The 1st Annual Tails on the Trail raised $10,000.  Over 200 runners participated in the marathon, many with pets. The money raised will be used to purchase two dog kennels in the new shelter with the plaque
 “Tails on the Trail 2010.”

Did you know that Tails on the Trail was an idea that started with 2 Topeka women who wanted to
combine their love of running and dogs to help raise money for Helping Hands Humane Society (HHHS)?  It all started 5 years ago when HHHS was trying to move in to their new building on 21st and Belle. Lena and Linda wanted to help raise money so the animals could move in to a new building with more exposure to the Topeka residents. Tails on the Trail has been a huge success and continues to grow. Best of all, many dogs have been adopted on the day of the event and we hope to continue to raise awareness for these animals.  Visit our facebook page to learn more: www.facebook.com/tailsonthetrail
