WHAT IS BARK IN THE PARK?
Bark in the Park is a 5K Run & 1 Mile Dog Walk each year in October at City Island in Harrisburg, PA. This is our 9th year doing this event and we're hoping to have another record-breaking year with your help!
Participants in this event get to spend a fun October morning with their pets, dress up in costumes and run and/or walk for a great cause. Your monetary donation directly helps to provide veterinary care and treatment, often life-saving, to animals in need. The Last Chance (TLC) Fund provides financial grants for those animals when limited or no financial means exist to pay for the care.
Last year's Bark in the Park event had:
- Over 475 people participated in walk and/or run;
- Approximately 40 donated raffles; and
- Over $15,000 raised for the TLC Fund.
WHO BENEFITS FROM THIS EVENT?
Proceeds from this event go to finance the Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation’s “The Last Chance Fund” (TLC). The mission of this fund is to help create a healthier future for animals and owners by providing necessary funds to administer veterinary care to those who need it and do not have the means to pay. These are just a few animals that TLC has helped over the years.
