Bark in the Park, May 21 Raising Dollars For Dogs

Bark in the Park

Bark in the Park has been Raising Dollars for Dogs for more than 20 years! The Humane Society of Missouri’s largest fundraising event, Bark in the Park is a 5K Run, One-Mile Walk and Pet Festival benefitting HSMO’s Animal Cruelty Fund. Register as an individual, form or join a “Pack” and raise dollars by asking friends, family and co-workers to sponsor you and help you achieve your fundraising goal. Then on May 21 gather your Pack and come to Cricket Field in Forest Park to run, walk or just enjoy the festivities at the Midwest’s largest pet festival, with more than 5,000 people and their dogs attending each year.

Dollars raised through Bark in the Park help to provide second chances to animals who have suffered severe abuse and/or neglect. Sometimes living in deplorable conditions with no access to food, water or shelter, these animals are rescued by the Animal Cruelty Task Force and brought back to the Humane Society for treatment, rehabilitation, socialization and finally adoption into “fur”ever homes.
