Sienna Plantation’s popular Canine Carnival added another opportunity for Sienna residents to get involved, with well-heeled dogs and their doting humans stepping out to raise money for disadvantage children.
Our community partnered with Fort Bend Cares, combining the “pupular” fur festival with the charity’s annual Doggone Fun Run to raise $24,500 for local children in need — $8,700 more than last year’s fundraiser!
The day-long event started with more than 200 participants lacing up their Sauconys at the Village of Sawmill Lake for the two 5K races — one with man’s best friend and one without — as well as the 1-mile walk/run.
Following the run, fashionable Fidos took to the runway to show off creative costumes as they competed for best-dressed status. Entertainment was provided by a DJ and the high-flying antics of Houston Disc Dogs. Music, carnival rides, inflatables, food trucks and other family-friendly activities rounded out the tail-wagging fun.
Children were not the only beneficiaries as carnival-goers did their part to help
the Fort Bend Animal Shelter and Hunting for Adopt a Rescued Friend find forever homes for furry friends.
