Humane Society planning 'Bark in the Park' event

Thursday, September 23, 2004

Dogs are invited to a picnic in the park Saturday when the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri hosts its annual "Bark in the Park" fund-raising event. Activities begin at 9 a.m. at Capaha Park with registration. The schedule includes a blessing of the animals, a walk around the park's lagoon, contests and vendor booths. Registration is $5 in advance of the event and $7 on Saturday for participants who wish to bring a dog. There is no charge otherwise. Dogs that attend must be at least 6 months old, kept on a six-foot or shorter leash, have current IDs and rabies vaccinations, and be spayed or neutered. For registration information, call the Humane Society at 334-5837.
