Paws In The Park Cancelled for 2022: Cite Lack of Event Volunteers
Bond County Humane Society (BCHS) has made the difficult decision not to hold the 18th Annual Paws in the Park event this year. “It was a very difficult decision to make,” leaders of the society said, “since we depend on the income from the event to continue our mission of saving homeless, neglected, and abandoned cats and dogs.”
A lack of volunteers to organize, set up, and conduct the event was the primary reason for cancelling. That, along with a decline in attendance at last year’s event, prompted the decision. In the past, Paws in the Park has featured dog contests, costume parade, nail trimming, vendor booths, silent auction, food, and demonstrations of K-9 Search & Recovery. The event would draw more than 350 participants and guests throughout the day. It is the hope of BCHS that Paws in the Park will return in September 2023.
Donations are appreciated to help Bond County Humane Society cover the expenses associated with their lifesaving mission, as well as promoting awareness and education which allow animals and humans to come together for the benefit of both. As BCHS is an approved 501c3 non-profit, your donation may be tax-deductible. Donors may make one-time or monthly financial gifts by check, credit card through Paypal, Facebook fundraisers; or make purchases from BCHS’s Chewy.com and Amazon.com online wish lists. People may also give in honor or in memory of a person, pet, or occasion. Many employers will match charitable donations, increasing the impact of your gift, so check with your company first.
