Paid parking is available in surrounding parking garages, surface lots, and metered street spots. PetPromise does not provide parking passes, vouchers, or parking fee reimbursement for volunteers. The City of Columbus and private garage owners set the prices of these facilities. Please pay attention to signs in garages, in lots, or on streets to determine whether you are parked legally.
Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome at Rescue Run. Please keep your dog on a short leash on the course so as not to trip up other runners or walkers. Please also pay attention to signs of fatigue and do not push your dog to finish if your dog wants to stop. Find a volunteer if your dog needs help. Water for dogs will be provided.
