COLUMBIA — The Central Missouri Humane Society will host two events on Saturday — the Running of the Bulls 5K run/walk and the annual Hound Dog Homecoming carnival.

This is the fourth year of Hound Dog Homecoming  but Running of the Bulls is a first-time event, said Allison Brown, shelter relations coordinator for the Central Missouri Humane Society.

Running of the Bulls

The 5K run/walk begins and ends at the Central Missouri Humane Society, 616 Big Bear Blvd., and runs along the Bear Creek Trail. The race will raise money for the Humane Society's adoption program Bull Runs, which helps find homes for breeds such as pit bulls and bull terriers.

Microchipping, nail trims, city licenses and dog accessories will be available after the race. The race begins at 11 a.m.

Hound Dog Homecoming

The annual carnival at the Central Missouri Humane Society includes music, carnival games, prizes, a mini pumpkin patch and food from Smokin’ Chicks BBQ.

The event raises money for the shelter through the crowning of three pets as the “king,” “queen” and “feline ambassador.” The candidates that have raised the most money for the Humane Society will receive the titles.

The carnival will be held from 1 to 4 p.m.
