"Because running is more fun with a dog..."

Get involved today!

Mission Statement

Our primary mission is to connect Philadelphia runners with homeless dogs as running companions.  We provide ongoing support for various shelter facilities in Philly through sponsored adoption events and daily running adventures for the homeless dogs as they wait for their forever homes.

Donate

The Monster Milers is a non-profit organization, incorporated with the Department of State of Pennsylvania.  Your generous donations helps us expand our reach.  In 2014 we will expand to even more shelters and set up a foster care network within the running community, but we can’t do it without your help. 

Become a Volunteer

Are you ready to become a Miler?  Great!  We are partnered with three convenient shelter locations that you can run from in Center City Philadelphia!
