Paws in the Park 2022

Thank you for making a difference.

It was great seeing so many smiling faces and happy dogs as we hosted Paws in the Park at Woodbine Park after a two-year hiatus!  

There were tons of activities for everyone – from participating in the pup walk, to seeing pups play in pools at the Chartwell tent, to grabbing a cold beverage from the Black Lab Brewing beer garden.   

Plus, the kids were entertained at the Kid’s Zone, and adults and dogs were entertained by the vendor village and all the free dog treat samples! Oh, and we cannot forget about the adorable doggy fashion show and the delicious food humans and dogs snacked on from Fresh Pops, Eat Nabati, Kaspace, Melitta, and the Bark n’ Bakery.   

As many of you know, Paws in the Park is more than a fun event to gather the animal-loving community – it is also our largest fundraising event of the year. This year we raised over $50,000. This will help us to continue as a world class animal welfare organization.  

We’d like to send a big thank you to all of those who attended, fundraised for us, shared the event on social media, and talked about the event to friends and family. Paws in the Park was a success thanks to your support!   

And we’d like to give a shoutout to our vendors and sponsors – Zoomer Radio, The New Classical 96.3 fm, Boehringer Ingelheim, StateView Homes, Chartwell Retirement Residence, Ren’s Pets, Petline Insurance, Meridian, and Black Lab Brewing.
