The Anti-Cruelty Society's 16th Annual Bark in the Park
On Saturday, May 1st, Chicagoland animal lovers will hightail it to Montrose Harbor for The Anti-Cruelty Society’s 16th annual Bark In The Park, a 5K (3.1)mile walk with (or without) your dog, to benefit The Anti-Cruelty Society, Chicago's comprehensive, open-door, unlimited stay humane society. After the walk join us for snacks from our sponsors for you and your pup, a souvenir photo booth, Animal Intuitive Denise Zak, or pet portraits with Kevin Landis. You can participate in contests including cute pet tricks, the dog-owner look-a-like, or the canine fashion parade. Other fun-filled activities include an agility course, sampling free sponsor products or check out the interactive fun in the Family Fun tent. If your dog is an Anti-Cruelty Society alum, meet at the stage after the walk so you can meet other Anti-Cruelty Society alumi. And don't forget to check out the free raffle at the stage, listen for your participant number and you could win a great prize. You can even try your luck in our 50/50 raffle (the winner receives half and The Anti-Cruelty Society wins half of the pot). Please help us raise fund for our life-saving work by asking your friends, family and co-workers to pledge your walk. Your registration fee helps to pay for your t-shirt and other costs involved with us presenting the event. You can win great things for yourself by raising funds. Our goal is for everyone to raise least $196 - that is the first week's shelter care for one dog and one cat. After you complete your registration you will have the opportunity to create your own fundrasing page. It's fun and easy. Check our website for a complete list of this year's prizes. The participant who raises the most pledges will win two round trip airline tickets (some restrictions apply). Thank you so much and we will see you at the Park!
