Tails N Trails Race Description

This is an untimed fundraising event open to adults, children and leashed dogs of all activity levels.  Tails N Trails Fun/Run Walk will take place through two of lower North Mankato/Mankato area scenic park trails.  Post finish line activities will include local vendors, snacks, water, and more. 

BENCHS provides impound services for stray cats and dogs in North Mankato and Mankato and surrounding areas. Our mission is dedicated to finding loving forever homes for those homeless cats and dogs that are brought to our shelter, we use spay/neuter programs to reduce the number of unwanted pets, and microchipping to help reunite lost/found animals with their owners.

BENCHS is a 501(c)(3), non-profit animal shelter with limited paid staff and relies on community support, generosity of donors, volunteers, grants and fundraising events to maintain quality care for the animals in our care.
