Chicago’s BEST Dog-Friendly Party

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Welcome to "Bark in the Park 2019"!

The Anti-Cruelty Society is delighted you can join us for the 25th anniversary of Chicago's oldest and largest dog-friendly party..."Bark in the Park"!

Each year, thousands of people and pets gather together along Chicago's breathtaking lakefront to raise funds for animals in need. This is The Anti-Cruelty Society's biggest event of the year and your participation helps us provide food, shelter, medical care, and second chances for thousands of animals.

WHAT IS "BARK IN THE PARK"? Currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, "Bark in the Park" is Chicago's oldest dog-friendly party for the whole family. Beginning with a 2.5 mile walk along Chicago's beautiful lakefront, the event is 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, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, pawdicures, arts and crafts, souvenir photos, and a 50/50 cash raffle. Guests also enjoy a variety of free food, a beer tent, live music, and much more!

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE: We encourage you to walk with us along the lakefront and help animals in need! All you need to do is register yourself, or set up a team with your family, friends, or coworkers. All your efforts make a real difference to the animals we help 365 days a year. Talk to your family, your friends, and your coworkers today and see if they will sponsor you in our walk...and don't forget to invite them to the party! The walk kicks off at 9:00 a.m. (registration opens at 7:30 a.m.) and the event runs until 1:00 p.m.
