Support Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society and other local rescues by participating in Fetch & Pounce, a month-long virtual fun run/walk/bike event during the month of May to benefit local homeless animals.
The event, in partnership with Pets 2 the Rescue, allows participants to safely take part in a virtual one-mile or 5K run/walk or 5-mile bike ride during the entire month of May to raise money for Karma Cat + Zen Dog. Registration costs $13.25 and $10 of the registration fee is donated to the animals taken care of by Karma Cat + Zen Dog.
To participate, simply register at https://pets2therescue.org/northeast anytime between May 1 and May 31, and choose Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society as your participating shelter and team. Participants then complete their run/walk/bike distance while observing social distancing protocols, and can either submit their time via the IYR Virtual mobile app or manually online. Participants can RSVP to Karma Cat + Zen Dog’s Facebook event page for the race for fun and inspiring content from fellow team members.
“Exercising and spending time outside is a great way to lift your spirits during this time,” said Karma Cat + Zen Dog’s Development Director, Rebecca Smith. “Although we cannot exercise together in person, virtually participating in an event together to benefit the animals is something we’re very excited about doing.”

Although Karma Cat + Zen Dog’s adoption facilities in Milltown and North Brunswick are currently closed, many cats currently reside in volunteer foster homes and those interested in adopting can browse available pets online at https://karmacatzendog.org/adoption/ and contact the rescue to set up a virtual meet and greet.
