Laps for YAPS
The tenth annual Laps for YAPS is Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the Cottonwood Ranch in Yerington, Nevada. The Cottonwood Ranch has a big shady lawn where the event administration, raffle, dog races, lunch, etc. all take place. This makes the event great for spectators. It’s a great fun day for everyone – including the dog.
For the serious folks, there are 5K and 10K Races. For the rest of us there is a 2-mile Fun Walk with (or without) your dog that includes a shady section along the Walker River. There is also a ½ mile Kids’ Race for the younger set.
The Small Dog Races are back again this year! These are great fun to watch! Divisions by size help give each dog a real chance to win.
Local businesses provide a range of great items for a big raffle which is administered in such a way that you never end up with a prize you did not really want!
After the race, Round Table Pizza of Yerington is providing lunch.
YAPS (Yerington Animal Protection Society) is a 501.3.c non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the problem of unwanted pets in Smith and Mason Valleys by means of low cost spay/neuter programs. Please check the website www.yapspay.org for further details or call (775)463-2618.
