LAS VEGAS – This #BarkFriday is the perfect time to register your four-legged pals to join me, Bark-André Furry, for the 15th Anniversary Las Vegas Great Santa Run, presented by Circle K, on Saturday, December 7! As a Las Vegas pet-fluencer and fluffiest hockey fan in the Valley, I am looking to fill Downtown Las Vegas with all my pawed, clawed, winged and webbed friends and beloved pets. Even my brother Deke is going to join in on the fun!

Your biped (AKA your human) can register for just $25 using my special code, OVPETS19, online at and then they can add on a pet registration (or two) for just $10 each! By signing up, your biped will get a 5-piece Santa suit, swag bag and an awesome finisher’s medal and each of my furry friends registered will receive a gift bag full of fur-nomenal items including some tasty treats endorsed by yours truly. This special is good through race day!

The Las Vegas Great Santa Run is one of my tail-waggin’-est events and Opportunity Village’s signature fundraisers. It helps improve the lives of nearly 2,000 Southern Nevadans with intellectual disabilities annually. For 15 dedicated years, the Las Vegas Great Santa Run has grown to host thousands of participants from all over the world. The run will take place in Downtown Las Vegas, kicking off under the canopy (or ROOF!) at the Fremont Street Experience.
