Join us Saturday June 11th on the Pennsy Trail in Greenfield for the Feline Fun Run 5K! This event is the Eagle Scout project of Matthew Hentz, Troop 770, for the Hancock County Humane Society, to raise awareness of the shelter’s mission and help out while having fun.

This is an untimed event, and is open to runners, walkers, individuals, families or other groups. You can register from 7:30am-8:00am at the Depot Street Park, and you can start the course  at 8:00am, at your own pace.  Walker-friendly... just start no later than 8:20am and finish by 10am. The 5K course begins and ends at the park. Dogs on a leash, or cats in a contained stroller, are welcome to walk with you! (Pets must be current on rabies vaccine) No bibs, medals, or awards, just fun.

No entry fee, but a free-will donation for the Humane Society will be accepted at registration. Cash, check, or card can be used for a donation; or bring something from our "Wish List" here .

Sponsors are being sought – if you or your business would like more information, please email us at and we’ll put you in touch with Matthew.

Thanks to our current sponsors: Walmart, Petsmart, and Scecina Memorial High School!
