Bark in the Park

Help Animals in Need

Bark in the Park 2023

The PHS's 27th annual Bark was a big success!  

Tower Park in Peoria Heights was a great location for Bark again this year. Hundreds of dogs and people enjoyed personalized paw-print paintings, fun dog games, The Marvelous Mutt Show, Cake Walks with prizes, souvenir photos, pet related exhibitors, dog rescue groups, raffle baskets, a cash raffle drawing, and a parade! Thank you to our sponsors, donors, exhibitors, and volunteers for your support!


Bark in the Park is the Peoria Humane Society's largest fundraiser and is vital to continuing to support people and animals throughout the Peoria area. Proceeds from Bark in the Park will help fund life-saving care for local animals in need, promote adoption of homeless shelter animals, provide food for hungry pets in our community, reduce pet overpopulation and create awareness about kind treatment of animals through educational programs. The PHS is a non-profit organization that depends on donors and funds raised through events like Bark in the Park to help animals locally.  


The need to help animals is ongoing. If you are unable to attend Bark in the Park, you can still partner with us and join in the fight to help animals who need protection and care by sending your donation to Peoria Humane Society, 2600 NE Perry, Peoria, IL 61603 or click on Donate show your support for animals.
