New Leash on Life is gearing up for the 13th annual Bark in the Park on Saturday, which will feature fun activities for the entire family four-legged members included.
The event will be held at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. New Leash Director Amy Haverstick said admission will be $5 for adults and free for children and dogs.
Angela Chapman, one of our board members and volunteers, has taken over much of the organizing this year and it is going to be fantastic. We are extremely excited and plan for it to be better than ever, Haverstick said. There is a cupcake eating contest for people and their dogs, scavenger hunt, and vendors.
There will also be a Look What the Cat Drug In yard sale with free admission.
This is one of our biggest fundraisers and the money raised from booth sales and sponsorships goes to our general operations fund, Haverstick said. Many shelter dogs will also be at the event to meet-and-greet with animal lovers. It just gives people a chance to see what we do.
