Bark is back! Join The Anti-Cruelty Society for Bark in the Park 22 on Saturday, May 21 at our brand new location, Soldier Field!

Bark in the Park is the Society’s single largest fundraising event of the year. Walking in Bark in the Park shows you care, but raising funds for the animals shows them you care. More than 75% of our funding comes from compassionate individuals like you. Bark in the Park is more than a walk, it’s a chance to make a difference and save lives!

The walk steps off at 9a.m where participants will enjoy sweeping skyline views as you stroll along Chicago’s famous lakefront path surrounded by fellow animal lovers and their canine companions.  The walk will be followed by a morning of fun and long-lasting memories with your pooch on the Stadium Green. Take part in the celebration complete with canine agility courses, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, a pawdicure spa, caricature drawings, arts and crafts, relay races, family friendly activities, plus free snacks, souvenir photos, 50/50 cash raffle, and much more!
