Going for a run or walk? Well, there’s plenty of shelter dogs who’d love to go with. Team Spiridon and other partners have teamed up to encourage runners (and walkers) to get shelter dogs (and cats, if you really think you can make that work out…) out to share some fresh air and exercise. The result: better-adjusted, healthier, and therefore, more adoptable dogs. And people. So, get off your butt, and run a mutt!

Hey, RuffTailers! This Thursday is Team Spiridon's first pub run of the season, benefiting Central Texas Pig Rescue. A little running, a lot of fun, all to help our pig friends! Come on out, and please share! ... See MoreSee Less

Pig Prom Pub Run!

May 25, 2017, 6:30pm - May 25, 2017, 10:30pm

Time to get your little piggies in your best formal running shoes: it's prom time. Our first pub run of 2017 will benefit Central Texas Pig Rescue, and the great work they do to advocate, educate and rehabilitate on behalf of pet pigs. In fact, they'll be bringing a porcine friend, Waylon, to Stay Gold for the start. Here's how it works: - Dress for prom. A prom with a couple of miles of running involved, like when you dined and dashed at Olive Garden. Or come dressed like a "normal" person (boo); - Bring a $10 donation; - Get something cool to take with ya; - We'll depart Stay Gold at around 7:30, and head to Shangri La, where we'll hang out until about 8:30, before trotting back to Stay Gold; - Walking is fine! - Stay Gold will be offering up some drink specials, and we'll have some auction items, so bring some dough, AND YOUR ID (so's you can get into the bars)! - The lovely folks at Toaster, the food truck at Stay Gold, will be serving up their freaking delicious fare without pork for the evening, in solidarity! So, bring some dough for that, too, 'cause ya gotta eat. So, bring your friends, have some fun, and help a great cause! Got questions? Post 'em!
