Outdoor Lure Course

Atlanta race4rescue eventslide

Saturday/Sunday ALL DAY

Racing across a grassy course with the wind in their face, free as a bird, and a “lure” just within reach? It doesn’t get much better than that, folks! Lure coursing is a sport for dogs (and even the occasional kitty!) which involves chasing an exciting mechanical “lure” that jerks, jumps, wiggles, and turns on a dime, much like those elusive squirrels and rabbits that somehow (luckily) always manage to get away. So any pet who enjoys an exciting game of “Chase,” regardless of age, ability, handicap, size, or skill, is welcome to give the Lure Course a try! The sport of lure coursing is rapidly increasing in popularity, and once you’ve taken a gander at this game in action, you’ll see exactly why. This is a very popular feature, so those whose pooch (or courageous cat) would love a chance to give it a go, should make their way right over to the course and sign up. 


Lure is $10 for the first 5 minutes, and $5 for additional 5 minutes.  (either at the same time or they can come back).


Race for the Rescues is a 501 C3 Georgia Non-Profit Organization raising money for approved non-profit and 501 C3 animal rescues groups and animal welfare organizations in our area and the State of Georgia. 
Working together we are hoping to help and educate in the ongoing problem of pet over population. 


We host many events during the year - Race for the Rescues 5k & Fun Run, Rods for the Rescues Open Car Show, Pictures with Santa for Pets and Family, Ride for the Rescues Motorcycle Charity Ride, and much much more!
