Bark in the Park
May 3 @ 9:00 am

After much deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 21st annual Bark in the Park due to the outbreak of canine influenza. Our priority is always the health and well-being of the animals. Trying to make the most of this unfortunate situation, we are hosting a virtual walk in its place, iBark in the Park!

All of the fun of Bark in the Park without the risk, iBark in the Park encourages animal-lovers across the Chicago area to fundraise on behalf of the Society and “walk where they are”. Kicking-off Sunday, May 3, 2015, you pick the time, place, and distance that’s right for you, unite friends and family, with or without your dog, and join The Anti-Cruelty Society’s community of caring!

In an effort to incorporate all of the fun and interaction at our traditional Bark in the Park, we are creating a virtual park where participants can enjoy many of the fun activities we had scheduled. At www.ibarkinthepark.org registrants can download their walking bib, visit our sponsors, request a caricature sketch of their pet, view demonstration videos, see Noodles the Wonder Dog! in action, enter the best dressed pet or best pet trick contests, and so much more!
