In Hopkins County, the public is encouraged to support the Humane Society this weekend in their annual 5k run.
Along with a traditional 5k, residents can bring their pets along for a one mile Wag and Walk.
The public can also take pictures with Santa Claus.
It's $25 to participate and all the proceeds go towards the Humane Society's eventual move to their new shelter.
"Hopefully we're going to get a lot of support and be able to start filling that empty building up. We got a lot of grants and things to get that taken care of but it doesn't cover all the little things like furnishing, cages, food and all the stuff we're going to need at the new facility," said Charles Gentry, Humane Society Director.
The event starts on Saturday morning at 7 at the Madisonville Municipal Airport.
