Bark in the Park 2020



Our second largest fundraiser and community event, Bark in the Park, welcomes 1,000 animal lovers along with a great herd of furry friends. The event kicks off with a 10k run, 5k run and 1-mile leisure walk at The Shops at Fallen Timbers on Saturday, August 22nd, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Dogs will enjoy games and contests including “The Great Peanut Butter Lick-Off” and “Best Tail Wag.” Attendees will enjoy live entertainment, food, games for the kiddos, and fun! — as well as meeting other animal lovers in our community.
