Your registration unlocks exciting opportunities for participating in the Bark!

By collecting $50 or more in donations for the animals, you’ll receive a Virtual Bark in the Park 2020 t-shirt. All registered participants who collect $1000 or more in donations for the animals will be awarded a special limited edition Virtual Bark in the Park 2020 hooded sweatshirt!

Raising more donations means we can do even more for the animals, and it also means you can earn even more great incentive prizes.

  $500                                                  $25 gift card

$1000                                                  $50 in gift cards

Gift cards have been generously donated by local restaurants and businesses.

* Gift card drawings will be held October 4, 2020 on our Facebook Live Kick-Off Event!  Your donations must be received by September 30, 2020, to be eligible for drawings.


Registered participants who have collected and turned in at least $50 in donations by September 18, 2020, will be able to pick up their t-shirt, in their chosen size, before the October 4 event.  Otherwise, you may receive your t-shirt in 1 - 2 weeks following the event.


The easiest way to collect donations for the animals is by setting up your personal fundraising page when you register.  Then email it to family, friends, and co-workers, asking them to help you with your fundraising efforts by making a donation to Bark in the Park.


You can also print the donation/pledge form included (coming soon) here to collect and record donations in person. Again, in order to receive your t-shirt before the October 4 event, your donations collected in person should be mailed to PHS, along with your donation/pledge form, and be received at PHS by September 18, 2020.
