Current & Upcoming events
We know that working out can sometimes be a little ruff - but now you can get your sweat on in support of rescue!
Orangetheory Fitness has 19 locations across Washington state who are all throwing down in a friendly competition to raise lifesaving funds for our mission! Each location is committed to the grind - putting in the work towards their goal of raising the most money for the animals! Each location is raising funds for a specific rescue of ours - should be a fun holiday battle!
