Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Humane Society of Missouri has had to make the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel this year’s Bark in the Park event on May 16 in Forest Park. For 27 years, Bark in the Park has served as the single largest fundraising event for the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Fund. Thousands of homeless and neglected animals have been helped over the years via this fund through rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption. By canceling the event, much-needed funding will be lost. But there is a fun way that you can still help!
HSMO is excited to be participating in the upcoming National House Pawty fundraiser now through April 18. This virtual event is bringing people together across the country to give back and show their support for animal shelters in need during these unprecedented times.
George the Beagle, who was voted this year’s Bark in the Park Mascot is leading our fundraising efforts! Please join him, and us, by becoming part of our team and sharing the House Pawty with your friends and family!
