New Location for Bark in the Park Fundraiser

For 2013, the longest-running event sponsored by the Door County Humane Society (DCHS) has a new site – Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay. The “Bark in the Park” fundraiser will be held Aug. 24, 9 am to 12:30 pm. In addition to the change of park, there are new services, lunch menu and vendors, but the most-loved elements remain.

Registration begins at 9 am; the cost is $25 for an individual, and $50 for a family. The fee includes a doggie goodie bag and lunch. A 2013 commemorative T-shirt is given to anyone raising at least $25 in pledges beyond the registration fee.

Micro-chipping will be available at a cost of $25. Master of Ceremonies is radio personality Chuck Lakefield, and music will be provided by Mike & Bob Starr of Coverleague.

Dogs must be older than four months old and rabies vaccinated; a collar tag or rabies certificate will suffice. An adult must accompany any walker younger than 18 years old.
