The Nova Scotia SPCA invites you, your family and friends to join in the fun at the third annual 'Bark in the Park' taking place Saturday, September 15 (rain or shine) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Shubie Park in Dartmouth.
This signature fundraiser brings hundreds of animal lovers and their canine companions together for a great day of food, fun, information and entertainment.
Bark in the Park 2012 promises to be a howling success! This family fun event, which attracted more than 400 participants in 2011, features live entertainment, face painting, a barbecue, agility and flyball demonstrations, "Dogs with Jobs" (tricks and obedience tips), "Ask a Vet", kids' activities, dog-related vendors and services, contests, prizes and much more!
Event details and downloadable pledge sheets are available on the Nova Scotia SPCA website at www.spcans.ca/events.html.
You don't have to bring a canine companion to join in on the fun.
Proceeds raised through pledges and donations will go to the Nova Scotia SPCA to help the Society continue its mandate to prevent abuse, neglect and cruelty to vulnerable animals in Nova Scotia and to help cover the thousands of dollars spent each month to provide the necessary medical care for all animals prior to adoption.
The Nova Scotia SPCA is a registered charity comprised of a network of branches, which rely primarily on volunteers and donations to fund animal protection, care and rehabilitation, advocacy and humane education. Proceeds raised from Bark in the Park will go towards the operation of the Society.
The Society's goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need in the province of Nova Scotia. In 2011, the Society saved more than 8,000 animals and responded to approximately 18,000 calls at the Provincial Office alone concerning the welfare of animals. The Society is not an agency of the government and only receives $3,000 a year to fulfill our mandate. It requires more than $1,000,000 a year to operate/maintain its shelter facilities and conduct cruelty investigations. This annual signature event contributes significantly toward much-needed revenue.
