Geoffrey Scovil of Albuquerque, New Mexico is an attorney specializing in Habeas Corpus law. When he is not working, Geoffrey Scovil supports Animal Humane New Mexico, a non-profit animal shelter for dogs and cats. Animal Humane New Mexico is currently preparing for their signature fundraising event, the Doggie Dash, and Dawdle.

The Doggie Dash and Dawdle is a two-fold event featuring a 5k run for the more athletically inclined or a one-mile walk for those looking for a more leisurely pace. The organization’s largest fundraiser, Animal Humane New Mexico expects over 4,500 participants and 2,000 dogs. All of the net proceeds earned from the event go towards the organization’s community programs, or to support their homeless pets, meaning the event benefits both dogs and cats.

This year’s Dash and Dawdle takes place on November 6th between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Balloon Fiesta Park. Aside from the run and walk, the event will also feature a Doggie Carnival, and a Barketplace, where guests can shop from rescue organizations and local vendors.

For those who cannot make it in person, but want to support the cause, there is an option to become a Virtual Dasher to help raise funds from home. There is no registration fee and you will gain eligibility for fundraiser prizes.

This year, Animal Humane New Mexico hopes to raise $300,000 through the Doggie Dash and Dawdle. To learn more about the organization or the event, visit www.animalhumanenm.org.
