Runners, walkers and dogs will put their feet and paws to the ground for a good cause later this month.

The 8th annual Dog Jog will be held April 30 at the Grange fairgrounds, located at 169 Homan Lane in Centre Hall. Proceeds will benefit Pets Come First, a no-kill shelter. About 400 pets find new homes and another 600 are spayed or neutered through the shelter each year.

The 5K run and 1.5-mile walk will also feature a pet fair, vendors, agility training, music, food and beverages, a microchip clinic and a silent auction.

The 5K run will start at 10 a.m., and the 1.5-mile walk at 11 a.m. The fair and auction will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Preregistration online at petscomefirst.org costs $25 before Monday and $30 after. A bandana and T-shirt will be included while supplies last. Registration can also be done on site the day of the event.
