Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary will be holding its 16th Annual 5K Run for the Animals and 1-Mile Fun Walk on Sunday, May 19th. All funds raised will go towards the life saving work Poplar Spring does every day. The funds will care and feed the farm animals that live at Poplar Spring, as well as educate the public about compassion towards all animals.

Poplar Spring was given $12,000 in matching donations. So all donations will be doubled! Please share this page with your family and friends. Your involvement is critical to Poplar Spring’s success. Thank you for all your help.

Every race participant who preregisters for the race will receive a stylish Poplar Spring race t-shirt!
