Bark in the Park, A Chicago Pet Tradition

Bark in the Park, A Chicago Pet Tradition
Thousands of dogs (and people) of all shapes and sizes turn out for Bark in the Park, including many adopted from the Anti Cruelty Society

Bark in the Park is wonderful Chicago tradition - thousands of people and their dogs all meet at about Montrose Street in Lincoln Park to talk a walk (just over 3 scenic miles) to benefit the Anti Cruelty Society of Chicago.

Social dogs and their social people are welcome to help out the pet in care at Chicago's oldest animal shelter.

Roz Varon and Hosea Sanders of WLS-TV and Bart Shore of WBBM-AM radio will emcee. Dozens of vendors are there offering a wide array of pet products and services. And there will all kinds of activities for people (and dogs too!), including agility and an animal communicator.

Listen HERE, as Nadine Wamsley of the Anti Cruelty talks about Chicago's legacy animal shelter, and this fun event.

Advance registration is $35 for adults, $30 for children under 13.  All dogs, and children under 3-years are free.
