Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary held its annual Dog Days of Summer 5K on Saturday, July 23 at Royal Palm Beach Commons Park. The Loxahatchee-based nonprofit has been holding two 5K events each year since 2020 to raise money and awareness. It allows dogs and their humans to run the race together. The first human to cross the finish line was Elijah Arterburn, while the first dog to cross was named Cocoa. Some dogs in attendance were rescued by Barky Pines and have since been adopted into loving homes. To learn more about Barky Pines, call (561) 402-1451 or visit PHOTOS BY ERIN DAVISSON
