The Animal Welfare Society of Jefferson County is having the 6th annual Bark in the Park fundraising event at Jefferson Memorial Park in Charles Town. The event will be held on June 2 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with registration at 9:30 a.m. Attendees and their best doggy pal or pals can participate in a day of fun. There will be a Blessing of the Animals, an Interactive Dog Pledge Walk, canine demonstrations, dog games, fashion show, food, vendors and canine contests.
Registration is a $10 donation per dog for the event and canine friends receive a doggy bandana. Collect pledges from friends and family to participate in the Interactive Dog Walk, similar to a walkathon, with suggested pledges beginning at $5 per lap.
