Humane Society of Missouri and Purina Bring Annual Bark in the Park

Bark in the Park

Celebration and Fundraiser to YOUR Park

Join the Humane Society of Missouri for this special virtual event April 1-17 to raise dollars to end animal abuse

What: The largest dog festival in the Midwest is virtual this year! Due to the pandemic, the Humane Society of Missouri’s annual Bark in the Park celebration is now Bark in YOUR Park, a virtual dog walk benefiting the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Fund. Participants are encouraged to walk, run or hike with their dog on their own or as part of a team, raising funds along the way.

Why: All proceeds raised from Bark in YOUR Park directly benefit the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Fund – dedicated to investigating, healing, and preventing animal abuse. The Animal Cruelty Fund also supports the Humane Society of Missouri’s efforts to hold animal abusers accountable and stop future neglect.

When: April 1 through 17, 2021

Registration is now open at www.hsmo.org

Where: Walk in your local park, walking trail, or favorite neighborhood spot – wherever is most comfortable for you and your pup! Participants can even join our park scavenger hunt by identifying regional parks through clues and then walking in that park and posting a picture of your walk on our event site!

Cost: Registration is $25 and includes an official Bark in YOUR Park T-shirt. Thanks to sponsor Purina, all registration fees are being matched by Purina up to $25,000!
