Join Houston Pets Alive! in celebrating American Heart Month this February with our Healthy Heart Hustle virtual marathon and “move your body” challenge. From January 23rd to February 24th, join us in a month-long celebration of fitness, compassion, and canine companionship. Whether you walk, jog, or run, every step you take supports our mission to save the lives of at-risk cats and dogs and find them loving homes.

American Heart Month:
In honor of American Heart Month, we’re emphasizing the importance of heart health for dogs and people alike. Capitalize on your New Year’s resolutions by incorporating fitness into your routine and fostering healthy habits for both you and your furry companions.

What do I do?

Get your legs moving and your heart pumping and raise lifesaving funds while walking or running a marathon (26.2 miles). Reaching a personal goal of $500 is enough to cover one dog’s heartworm treatment, so lace up those sneakers and make a pawsitive impact on your health while helping pets in need!

Why Participate?
This virtual marathon isn’t just about getting active, it’s a pawsome opportunity to make a difference in the lives of at-risk pets. Your participation and fundraising efforts will directly contribute to providing essential care, medical treatment, and love for our four-legged friends.

Fundraising Goal:
Each personal goal is set to $500 which represents the cost of heartworm treatment for one dog. Every dollar brings us closer to providing essential medical treatments, ensuring that every animal receives the care they deserve, so don’t let that total intimidate you, every bit helps! Plus, you’ll be earning fun prizes as you hit each milestone!

After Pawty Celebration:

After all your hard work, join us on February 24th at Karbach Brewery for the After Pawty! We will celebrate our collective achievements together. Don’t forget to pick up all the prizes you have earned during the month while you enjoy the vendors and get a drink!
