Paws in the Park (Video)

Paws in the Park is a fun-filled dog walk and festival to raise funds to the Montgomery County Humane Society. The city of Gaithersburg and the Humane Society team up for this event that takes place on Sunday, April 28 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Bohrer Park at Summit Hill Farm, 506 S. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg.

The event includes a 1-mile walk, pet games, demos, rescue groups, a “flealess” market with over 50 pet-friendly vendors, food, music and more. Registered walkers are encouraged to invite friends to support them through online donations. Supporters can sign on individually or by forming a team that includes family and friends, favorite breed groups, rescue organizations, companies, teams to honor or remember a pet — even the family cat. Entrance fees are $20 for an individual or $35 for a family.

To register and start fundraising online, visit www.firstgiving.com/mchsmd. Participants can also register on-site the day of the event.

Paws in the Park supports the Montgomery County Humane Society’s efforts to protect and care for unwanted, abandoned and abused animals. Programs include life-saving medical care, off-site adoption events, animal rescue, pet retention and pet bereavement workshops, foster homes, humane education, behavior advice, affordable spay/neuter, and a network of approximately 200 partnering rescue groups.
