Sat, Mar 2, 8:30 AM – Noon, Bark in the Park 2013 at Al Lopez Park, 4810 North Himes Ave, Tampa (Map). Emceed by FOX 13’s Charley Belcher.
You and your four legged friends are invited to join in the 26th Annual Walk for the Animals! Start the celebration early by collecting donations for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Donations provide shelter, food, spay/neuter services and medical care for the thousands of animals that are relinquished to the shelter each year. Dedicated walkers and supporters helped raise nearly $80,000 at Bark in the Park 2012!
Once again, Al Lopez Park will be transformed into “Dogtown U.S.A.”, a neighborhood full of fun for children, adults and dogs alike. Participants and their pets can visit Vendor Village, Rescue Row, Shop-til-You-Drop Street and Agility Avenue, among many other areas, and take part in Pet Costume/Talent contests. Doggy Fun Zone, a high-energy agility course for everyday dogs that was a huge hit with last year’s attendees, will return as a featured exhibit.
