By Staff | Apr 13, 2012

The Animal Welfare Society of Jefferson County will host the 6th annual Bark in the Park fundraising event at Jefferson Memorial Park in Charles Town on June 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with registration at 9:30 a.m. The event will include a Blessing of the Animals, an Interactive Dog Pledge Walk, canine demonstrations, dog games, fashion show, food, vendors and canine contests.

The event will benefit the homeless pets at the Animal Welfare Society shelter. Registration is a $10 donation per dog for the event. Each canine friend receives 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.

This major fundraiser for the Animal Welfare Society depends on the contributions from these pledges to help sustain the society’s animal shelter on Leetown Pike and other programs.
