Virtual Bark in the Park
(Sun. October 4th, 2020 (All day event))

Bark in the Park 2020 is going virtual!

In light of the current COVID 19 situation, we’ve opted to create an online virtual event to host our 24th annual Bark in the Park, to ensure the safety and well-being of participants.  But don’t think for a moment that it won’t be as fun as always!  The virtual event will feature online versions of these all-time Bark favorites!


                   Cash Raffle - Mutt Show - Bark t-shirts  - Virtual Vendors  - The Bark Walk!


Although we would much rather be with you in person, a virtual walk enables participation from anywhere, by anyone, and by any species!  On October 4, we will walk together, socially distanced, in our neighborhoods in support of Peoria Humane Society and our lifesaving mission and programs.


Your participation this year is crucial to help raise funds that are needed now more than ever!

Join us for this special Bark in the Park and help make a difference in the lives of countless animals in our community.
