As a warm-up to the Hotter 'N Firecrackers 5K and part of our July 3 'Night at the Races' - dachshunds will race to earn fantastic prizes! The races, which benefit Collin County Animal Shelter, are pretty simple, but tons of fun!

Dachshunds will be organized into heats. Heat winners then race in the finals to determine the grand prize winners. Each pup will run 10-15 feet from start to finish with the help of their owners. One person will be needed at the starting line and one person at the finish line.

All racers will receive a goody bag, and heat winners receive a prize. Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners receive prize baskets worth $75. Bring your dachshund and join us for a great evening!
