Larimer Humane Society's mission to further the compassionate, safe, and responsible relationship between animals and people.

FY17 FH5K Header

For more than 25 years, Northern Colorado has come together to help homeless pets in need at Larimer Humane Society’s annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade. This fun, family-friendly walk/run and expo is the biggest canine party of the year, complete with a dog friendly 5K walk/run, a pet expo featuring more than 70 vendors, dog contests and demonstrations, a Healthy Kids Run and new Kids Zone! 

Our 27th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 was the biggest canine party of the year! More than 1,200 participants, including 740 walkers/ runners, 350 dogs, 144 volunteers and 72 vendors came out to join the fun and support homeless animals in need! Because of our amazing community, we raised more than $85,000 to help the thousands of homeless, injured, ill, and orphaned animals cared for by Larimer Humane Society each year.

Hi I’m Bandon! I got to be the spokesdog and
inspiration for the 27th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on
the Promenade logo because my mom, Michelle Hilaire, is
awesome and was the top pledge-raiser for last year’s event.

You’ll be hearing a lot from me over the next few months so
I thought I’d take the time to introduce myself and tell you
little about me!

- I’m a 10-year-old Beagle
- My favorite activities are eating and sleeping and I’m really good at both!
- I am named after a golf course in Oregon, Bandon Dunes
- I’m a good boy and have my parents trained so well that I can get them to give me treats every time I go outside to go potty

Stay tuned to see who the spokesdog for the 28th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade will be!
