The Save a Stray 5K & Festival


Walk to show support for shelter dogs and cats (and bunnies and rats and guinea pigs and more!). The walk is a more leisurely physical endeavor than the 5K run, and it is perfect to do with friends if you’d like to chat, and of course, walk with your dogs.

The Save a Stray 5K kicks off at L.L.Bean’s Discovery Park in Freeport (next to the Bean Boot). Get directions

Saturday, August, 25, 2018. Check in begins at 7 a.m. at the Bean Boot. The Walk begins at 8:30 a.m., departing after the 5K participants have left the park.
