Bark in the Park is Liberty Humane Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year and the biggest pet festival in Hudson County! Each year hundreds of participants, vendors, and sponsors come together in Steven’s Park in Hoboken to celebrate the work (and the animals!) of LHS.
Visitors enjoy a celebratory dog-walk/parade, live entertainment, a free bounce-house & children’s activities, and delicious food & awesome vendors throughout the day! As part of this year’s celebration, the LHS is offering free adoptions of cats and dogs until Sunday, Sept. 25. “Every contribution towards Bark in the Park goes to support LHS’s care of homeless animals who otherwise wouldn’t get the care they need to thrive,” shelter staff wrote in an email newsletter. Liberty Humane Society first started the annual Bark in the Park fundraiser 11 years ago to celebrate shelter animals while also raising the funding that is critical for their care. Since municipal funding only covers about a seven-day stay for our animals, the donations that are raised at this event provide for everything their animals need to find their forever homes including: medication, vaccinations, spay/neuter, adoption and foster programs, training and enrichment. Your involvement in Bark in the Park is what turns these lost souls into happy, loving companions for their future adopters. If you can’t attend, you can still donate on the Liberty Humane Society website.
We hope that you will join us in fundraising for Bark in the Park 2015!
