Dog-friendly 5K coming to North Brunswick Sept. 16
Dogs and their owners stroll down Front Street during ‘Dog’s Night Out’ held in downtown Keyport on June 29. Residents of Keyport will enjoy a night out with their dogs, complete with local vendors, live entertainment, and a farmer's market. A special viewing of the film "A Dog's Purpose" will also be shown on West Front Street.

Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society will host its third annual Fetch & Pounce 5K on Sept. 16 when locals – and their canines – will hit the pavement to honor animals in need.

The chip-timed, USATF-certified race will be held rain or shine at North Brunswick Community Park, 2053 Route 130, North Brunswick.

Registration and packet pick-up begins at 7:30 a.m.. Race kickoff is at 9 a.m.

Participants are encouraged to bring their well-mannered, leashed canine running partners. Retractable leashes are prohibited, and participants are required to clean up after their pets.

Registration is $25 and all proceeds will benefit Karma Cat + Zen Dog.

Participants who register by Aug. 16 will receive a race t-shirt and goodie bag. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, as well as the top three fundraisers.
