Walk for a More Humane Chicago

Stadium Green at Soldier Field

Welcome to BARK 2022!

The Anti-Cruelty Society is delighted you can join us for Chicago's oldest and largest dog-friendly walk and party BARK.

Each year, thousands of people and pets gather along Chicago's lakefront to walk 2.5 miles and raise funds for animals in need. BARK is The Anti-Cruelty Society's biggest fundraiser of the year, and your participation helps us care for thousands of animals.

Walk with us along the lakefront and help animals in need. Just register as an individual, form a team, or join a team. Talk to your family, friends, and coworkers today and see if they will sponsor you or join your team. Don't forget to invite them to the party!  All your efforts make a real difference to the animals we help year-round. The walk kicks off at 9 a.m. (walk-in registration opens at 7:30 a.m.) and the event runs until 1 p.m.
