Walk Begins at 9am
The Anti-Cruelty Society’s 30th Annual BARK (formerly BARK in the Park and BARK from the Heart) is Chicago’s oldest dog-friendly, outdoor fundraiser for the whole family! More than 1,200 dog lovers, canine companions, and people who want to help animals in need will raise $250,000 to support The Anti-Cruelty Society’s mission. We welcome all dog lovers in celebrating The Anti-Cruelty Society’s 125-year-old history and community of caring.
Participants form teams and raise money while enjoying a morning with other animal lovers. The event begins with a 2.5 mile walk along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront, followed by the best pup-party at Soldier Field with food, beverages, music, family activities, and dog-friendly demonstrations.
The Anti-Cruelty Society works to raise awareness about the needs of animals. They promote responsible pet ownership and work together to help animals find peace, comfort and happiness.
