The 22nd Annual Paws in the Park dog walk & festival is a signature special event of the Montgomery County Humane Society, held in partnership with the City. One of the largest dog walks in the DC area, it raises funds to help homeless & abandoned animals throughout Montgomery County.
The Festival runs from noon to 4 p.m. and features a 1-mile dog walk at 2 p.m. The event will also include kids' activities, music, food, vendors & a silent auction. There will be contests for pets & their owners including best stay, best dressed, dog-owner lookalike, best trick, and more, with prizes awarded for first, second & third place finishers.
Paid attendees will receive a goody bag filled with giveaways from many popular area companies – while supplies last.
The Canine Agility Course & Competition – a crowd favorite – will return this year. This popular, off-leash area allows dogs to experience & compete in agility & other activities in the safety of an enclosed section. Prizes will be awarded in many categories.
Dozens of exhibitors will be on hand, many of whom will feature pet-related products or services, and there will be plenty of food for humans from a number of vendors. Sponsors will be on hand with giveaways and lots of surprises.
