Tanta Fundraiser @ Tanta
Feb 1 – Mar 1 all-day
Tanta Fundraiser @ Tanta | Chicago | Illinois | United States

Throughout the month of February, our River North neighbor, Tanta Chicago, is offering a rotating Pisco Sour cocktail menu benefiting us! $1 from each drink sold will benefit our four-legged friends!

The grape-based spirit is the foundation of the restaurant’s beverage program at Tanta and a great reminder that we should escape Chicago’s winter for a South American summer.

Stop by with your friends, co-workers, or even for a nice date night for Valentine’s Day!

Bark in the Park
May 3 @ 9:00 am
Bark in the Park

Sunday, May 3 marks the Society’s 21st annual Bark in the Park – a 5K walk (for dogs and their human companions!) at Montrose Harbor followed by a celebration in the park. Bark in the Park is the Society’s single largest fundraising event of the year. Last year our sponsors and participants walked to raise over $150,000 in support of our mission. This important fundraiser was the first pet-friendly event held in the City of Chicago; and with more than 3,000 animal lovers, supporters, and walking enthusiasts attending, we anticipate this year being the best yet!

After the walk, participants will enjoy a celebration in the park complete with a canine agility course, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, dog tattoos, a pawdicure spa, Animal Intuitive Denise Zak, caricature artist, plus free snacks, souvenir photos, a 50/50 cash raffle, and much more!
