Unofficial - Paws in the Park Dog Walk & Fest

On April 28, 2013 the Montgomery County Humane Society, in partnership for the third year with the City of Gaithersburg, will host one of the most exciting pet-friendly events of the year.

Last year over 1,200 people (and their four-legged pals!) enjoyed an afternoon of fun, taking part in activities such as a mile-long walk, games, pet-friendly vendors, demos, food, music, and more. Don't miss out on this family- and pet-friendly event at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm.

Registration is NOW open, and every dollar you raise through pre-event fundraising goes to helping the animals awaiting their forever homes at MCHS. In particular, money raised will:
• Raise much-needed funds for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals

• Make a positive difference in the lives of the dogs, cats, rabbits, small animals, reptiles, birds and other animals at the shelter

• Support life-saving programs such as humane education, foster and rescue programs, preventive medical care, adoption counseling, and much more

Sponsorships and vendor opportunities are available. For more information, visit the website or contact  or[masked]

    I was hoping for more pet type vendors and much more food. The pet vendors that were there were incredibly nice and had lots of dog treats, etc. for the pups. I would go again, but I would like more stuff.
