Bark in the Park 2013
When? Saturday, October 5, 2013
Where? Church Square Park, Hoboken, NJ
Event Time? 12pm - 5pm. Dog walk fundraiser begins at noon.
Bark in the Park, Liberty Humane's biggest fundraising and alumni gathering event of the year, is back! To celebrate Bark in the Park’s 10th year, we are planning for an even bigger and better event that will be jam-packed with fun games for humans and their furry friends.
The event kicks off with a half-mile dog walk that fundraisers take part in around Hoboken that concludes at Church Square Park for the festival which will be hosted by dog trainer and comedian, Justin Silver from the CBS series “Dogs in the City” (Courtesy of the Hoboken Comedy Festival).

Can’t attend Bark in the Park? Then sponsor the Bark in the Park 2013 mascot, Beau! He's an LHS alumni and a model pit bull doggie citizen. Or, you can be a virtual walker and still get your own personalized Bark in the Park fundraising website to share with your contacts.
Why is your involvement in Bark in the Park so important to the animals?
Liberty Humane Society first started the annual Bark in the Park fundraiser ten 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 our animals need to find their forever homes. Your involvement in Bark in the Park is what turns these lost souls into happy, loving companions for their future adopters.
We hope that you will join us in fundraising for Bark in the Park 2013!
