A tired dog is a happy dog!


Welcome to RunningDog! RunningDog is a program located in NE Ohio that allows runners to volunteer their time to take the homeless dogs out on running adventures. We are focused on raising adoption rates by doing our part to keep the kenneled dogs exercised. This program also allows the dogs to be as mentally stimulated and emotionally balanced as they can while waiting on their new homes.

What is RunningDog?

A Volunteer Program!

You don't always have to pay a race registration fee to run for your cause! Our runners are involved in helping homeless dogs with every run.

A Growing Endeavor!

We started at one facility and in a short time have moved into several locations. We have plans on implementing this program in as many facilities as we can!

A Labor of Love!

Our runners are very passionate about what we do. We give these dogs something that no one else can.

A Running Team!

We run solo at our convenience, but also "Run with the Pack". We have group runs led by our RunningDog Runners that allow the dogs to socialize and learn to mingle with other dogs.
