Race the trails (or go for a casual stroll) at Conestee Park side by side with your best running partner – your dog! Whether you’re racing with or without your four-legged companion or just walking the trail to support a good cause, Tails & Trails is fun for everyone. Make a difference in the lives of homeless animals and help Animal Care reach the goal of making Greenville County a NO KILL community.

We need your help! Take charge and raise funds that will help move us towards our goal of becoming a NO KILL community in 2019. Set a fundraising goal when you register and ask your friends, family and coworkers to help you save lives by donating.

As the largest open admission facility in South Carolina, Animal Care accepts all animals regardless of age, medical condition or behavior. Through the implementation of many life-saving programs, like targeted spay/neuter, we have seen a decrease in animal intake of more than 50% in just 5 years. Now, in 2020, we have reached the point where we can be considered a NO KILL community. Help us raise the funds to keep it that way by participating in the Tails & Trails 5K. We need your help!
