Healthy pets and healthy people are always in fashion! Partnering with Franklin’s Friends, a nonprofit local organization whose mission is to promote animal welfare and support animal charities, the Pet Alliance is holding Orlando’s first Run for Rescues event. The human health experts at Florida Hospital and canine fitness experts at Rocky’s Retreat have laced up their sneakers for the cause. The event will be held on Saturday, May 17, at The Mall at Millenia. Running shoes and tiaras? You bet! Accessorize your running apparel with a tutu, bow tie, or anything else you can imagine – and Run for Rescues!
