Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 9.09.55 AMJoin The Anti-Cruelty Society as we celebrate our 23rd Annual Bark in the Park 5K Walk and fundraiser on Sunday, May 21 at the Soldier Field Stadium Green. Bark in the Park is the Society’s single largest fundraising event of the year and 100% of all funds raised directly support the sick, injured, and homeless animals that come through our doors 365 days a year. More than 75% of the Society’s total funding comes from compassionate individuals like you!

Bark in the Park participants will enjoy sweeping skyline views as they stroll along Chicago’s famous lakefront path surrounded by fellow animal lovers and their canine companions. The walk will be followed by a morning and afternoon of fun activities such as canine agility courses, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, a pawdicure spa, caricature drawings, arts and crafts, relay races, family friendly activities, souvenir photos, and a 50/50 cash raffle.
