19th Annual Sacramento SPCA "Doggy Dash" & "Bark at the Park Festival" -- June 9, 2012

The 19th Annual Sacramento SPCA "Doggy Dash" and "Bark at the Park Festival" is happening this Saturday, June 9th, 2011 in William Land Park. About 5,000 pet-lovers will gather with (and without) their favorite doggy friends to raise money that benefits the Sacramento SPCA. This is so much fun! I was lucky enough to attend for the first time two years ago, and the event is so much fun! I "borrowed" one of my good friend's dogs since I lost my sweet boy Harold in 2010...The walk is a blast, and I also really enjoyed seeing all of the other dogs (including a Great Dane club with about 50 gorgeous Great Danes)! You can choose to participate in a 2k or 5k walk with your pooch. Registration opens at 7:30am and the walks begin at 9am.

The "Bark at the Park Festival" takes place in the park after the "Doggy Dash." Register your hound to compete in the Pup Show, high-flying Disc Contest, or the Pug Races (and if you have never witnessed the Pug Races, that alone is a MUST SEE!)!! Then be sure to visit the participating sponsors and exhibitors with pet-friendly businesses, see a Sacramento PD K-9 Unit demonstration, learn about Sacramento-area animal rescue organizations, or just enjoy some food while taking it all in.

Register here! Whether you choose to bring a 4-legged friend, or invite a two-legged friend along, mark your calendar for the "Doggy Dash" and "Bark at the Park Festival" and help make a difference in the lives of homeless animals sheltered at the Sacramento SPCA. Register as a solo participant, start a team or join an existing team.
