Bark in the Park


Get Ready To Bark!
Join us August 25th for Bark in the Park, a 2K Walk/5K Run to raise funds for homeless and neglected pets in Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities.

Every dollar raised at Bark in the park helps provide nurturing care, medical treatment and more to the nearly 10,000 animals who come through the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society each year.

With your support, these animals will get the care they need and the help to find their forever homes. That's something worth barking about!

Dogs are welcomed and encouraged to attend this event.
