We're walking for BARK this year. We found our beloved Bosco thanks to the Anti-Cruelty Society and have experienced so much joy as a result. We'll be walking with Bosco to support this worthy cause, and welcome all our human friends & furry loved ones to join us, either in person or in spirit!
Below is some more information about the event. We thank you in advance for joining us in contributing to this great cause!
BARK is Chicago’s oldest and best dog walk and party, and it’s also The Anti-Cruelty Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year.BARK begins with a 2.5 mile walk along Chicago's beautiful lakefront, followed by the best dog party in town with food, beverages, entertainment, and dog-friendly demonstrations. Some of the exciting activities planned for that day include: canine agility courses, pet product samples, activities for kids, souvenir photos, and a raffle. Participants will also enjoy a variety of free food and beverages, live music, and much more!
This year, the money raised will be used to provide critical care for thousands of animals and help them find good homes. It’s an amazing organization that I’m proud to support. Last year they placed more than 4,800 pets, helped abused and neglected animals, and performed over 4,800 spay/neuter surgeries to help control the pet population.
Every donation makes a difference. The Anti-Cruelty Society has an open-door policy and won’t turn away any animal regardless of age, condition, or temperament. A $10 donation can help pay for a deworming treatment, and a donation of $150 will pay for five days of shelter, medical care, and food for just one dog.
The Anti-Cruelty Society has been building a more humane Chicago for people and pets since their founding 1899. Since then, the Society has grown into Chicago's oldest and largest open admission animal welfare organization, and their programs and services improve the lives of thousands of animals and pet owners every year. The care that The Anti-Cruelty Society provides to animals in need is only possible through the friendship of the community. I hope that you will support me and support BARK 2022. Your generosity will help ensure that thousands of abandoned and neglected animals will find hope, comfort, and healing this year.
