Join Team Westside and show your love for German Shepherd Dogs (and mixes) by participating in the LA Marathon and the Big 5K — a great cause that gets you moving, too! In 2015, we were named “Most Outstanding New Charity Partner.” This year, our goal is to raise $50,000 for Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles and the amazing dogs they save, care for and place in loving homes. Join us and see what we all can do in 2021!

Have Fun & Meet Your Fitness Goal for a Cause You Love!

Don’t miss out on what promises to be a months long party of fitness, food, fun, friendship, and great memories. When you join Team Westside, you’re joining a group of people who share your love of German Shepherd Dogs (and other dogs, too). There’ll be special gatherings from now until race day, and after! You’ll enjoy meeting your fellow team members, as well as some of Westside German Shepherd Rescue’s amazing animals who are longing to find their forever homes. Since 2002, Westside — proud to be a no kill shelter — has rescued over 11,000 dogs and placed them into loving, adoptive homes.  Become a part of our family and help us save even more!
