Our annual Bark in the Park event is coming up and that means it’s time to select this year’s Bark in the Park mascot! In addition to being featured on the official event T-shirts, our Bark in the Park mascot has the honor of leading the Walk for Animals and representing rescued pets.

We had more entries than ever before this year and it was no easy task narrowing the list down to three finalists. Thank you so much to everyone who shared their sweet stories with us – St. Louis has a lot of amazing pets and pet parents.

Our three finalists include a beagle named George, a fluffy husky named Hilo Moonbeast, and a sweet puppy named Mack. Visit to view their stories and cast your vote for the dog you think would make the best Bark in the Park mascot!

Voting ends Wednesday, March 11 and the winner will be announced Monday, March 16!

Registration is now open for the 5k walk and run. We hope to see you Saturday, May 16 at Forest Park!
