Fundraising FAQ's

Why is it so important to fundraise as an Iowa Dog Jog participant?

The ARL helps over 10,000 pets every year - some neglected, some with urgent medical needs, and all in need of a safe space, nourishing food and lots of TLC to prepare them for their forever homes. The ARL receives no state, federal or United Way funding which is why we rely on animal lovers like YOU!
