It’s almost here! Our 16th annual Paws in the Park Walk & Pet Fest is coming up on Sunday, June 12, 2016 from 10am to 3pm at Emricson Park in Woodstock and we want you to join us!  We have changed the date to be in June this year in hopes that the weather will be sunnier, warmer and everyone can have even more fun! This family, pet-friendly event is open to the public and all well-behaved pooches with their humans. Our wonderful pet parade will start the event off with a walk around the 1+ mile nature path. After that you can enjoy games and contests, cool off in the doggy pools, feel the love during the pet blessing, visit with our great sponsors and vendors, raffles, food and more! We will also have some shelter dogs available for you to meet.

Register today at For $35 you will receive a limited-edition Paws in the Park t-shirt, goody bag and one dog bandana and admission to all the fun activities, games and more! Additional dogs are just $10 each. We also made it easy to set up teams and fundraising pages this year so you can help raise even more to help care for the animals at Helping Paws!

Register by May 15 and be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card!
