Don't want to face the Zombies alone? Create a team!
Forming a team is a great way not only to increase support for the Fuzzy Friends Rescue but also to have more fun.

Here are some frequently asked questions.

Why would I want to create a team?

By creating a team of 10 or more runners or walkers, you can save money. Each participant will save $5 on their entry fee when signed up as a team. Additionally, awards will be given to the team with the most participants and the team with the best costumes. So save some money and increase the fun factor!

Does each person on my team have to participate in the same event?

Each person on your team is free to register for the 1K Pet Walk or the 5K Zombie Run.

How do we sign up as a team?

Click on the “,Group/Team”, button during the registration process. Create a new team or join an existing team. After the 10th person registers, the first 9 team members will recieve their $5.00 discount as a refund.
