Thank you Greenville, Bond County, and the larger Metro East community for your support of the 13th Annual BCHS Paws In The Park Festival & Fundraiser last Saturday, September 17th.

Thanks for having your keepsake photo taken (by Teresa Price Photography of Edwardsville). Thanks for getting your dogs' nails trimmed and fur airbrush tattooed by Pet Designs Salon! Thanks for visiting with Tina of Brown Dawg Bakery and her fresh dog treats. And a big thanks for meeting our adoptable dogs and puppies! They loved all their new friends and hope many of you are qualified adopters ready to add a new furry family member!

More photos from the day and a list of the trophy winners have been posted on our Facebook Page!!
