Goodness Gracious encourages dogs and their parents to join them this November 5th in a 5k or 10k event that will benefit homeless animals across New England. For a fee of $30 in advance people and their pooches can run, walk or wheel in the event of their choice beginning and ending in Norton MA’s lovely animal sanctuary and petting farm that’s fun for the whole family.
The “Goodness Gracious Run for Rescue” is set for noon on November 5 at Winslow Farm, 37 Eddy Street, Norton, MA. In addition to the road race, the day will include free goodie bags and t-shirts; prizes for the best Halloween costumes and fastest finishers in the races; refreshments; and raffles – including a raffle for a year of free pet treats from race host Goodness Gracious of Marblehead, MA.

All the net proceeds from the November 5th Run for Rescue benefit a select group of exceptional animal shelters and rescue organizations including: Animal Rescue League of Boston, PAWS New England, Winslow Farm, Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter, Friends of Marblehead’s Abandoned Animals, Project Pawsitive, Buddy Dog Humane Society (Sudbury), Baypath Humane Society (Hopkinton), and Help Save One (RI).
The Run for Rescue was established by Goodness Gracious, local maker of delicious, healthy pet treats that donates 51% of its profits to community shelters and rescues wherever its treats are sold.

“Our mission is to enable all fortunate dogs and cats to help all less fortunate animals – one community, one neighborhood, one home at a time,” said Goodness Gracious founder and CEO, Amy Renz. “We save lives every day by donating half of our profits from the sales of our treats to community shelters, rescues, and spay/neuter programs and we’re excited to kick things up a notch this November 5th with our inaugural Goodness Gracious Run for Rescue. It will be an amazing day and the perfect way to celebrate the joy and love animals bring into our lives. So come run, walk or wheel your cookies off for a super cause,” she continued.
