Running and eating cookies for the dogs

I had the opportunity to attend the Cookie Crumbler 5k last Saturday and was able to meet a few adoptable dogs and speak with a few regular volunteers at Natalie’s Second Chance.

The 5k, hosted by Purdue University as a fundraiser for Natalie’s Second Chance No-Kill Dog Shelter, took runners all the way around campus.

Half way through the race the runners were offered a half dozen Insomnia cookies to help fuel them up for the rest of their run.

There were so many people there, some running their first ever race, everyone seemed to be having a good time. I was able to catch a few video clips of people interacting with each other and adoptable dogs.

I also had the opportunity to speak with several runners and even a regular volunteer with Natalie’s Second Chance.

Natalie’s is a huge part of the Greater Lafayette Community. Most everyone in the area has done something to try to help Natalie and her dogs. Many organizations on campus volunteer and donate to the dogs regularly.

If you would like to donate to Natalie’s veterinary bill fund or just donate to the shelter in general you can find their PayPal information on their website.
