Paws in the park; a pet lover’s party –

Dogs are taking over Young Patriots Park on Sept. 17, but it’s a friendly takeover.

Members of the Precious Animal Welfare Society of Michigan are encouraging area residents to grab a leash, load up their pups and head to the park, 14260 Sibley Road, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the group’s annual party for pet lovers.

The event will be kicked off with a march around the reflection pond. The march will be led by the top pledge money raiser, who will be honored as grand marshal. The honoree will win an award, as well as four tickets to The Henry Ford in Dearborn.
