About Bark in the Park 2021
In years past, Bark in the Park has been an incredible community event where hundreds of people have gathered to celebrate the love of our pets, enjoy a beautiful run with our dogs, all while fundraising for the thousands of animals that receive love, care, and medical attention at Greenhill Humane Society.
As the pandemic has forced change upon us we have changed Bark in the Park so we can continue to celebrate our pets, enjoy the great outdoors and still raise money for the animals of Greenhill, virtually!
This year it's more critical than ever that we come together to support the animals. This fundraiser helps us care for approximately 3,600 homeless pets every year and provide valuable services to our community. 2020 showed us that pets are so important to us all and keeping people with their pets through tough times is a dire need in Lane County.
This year, Bark (or meow) in the Park is virtual, meaning we are asking people to show their support for the animals by walking their dog around the neighborhood (with social distancing in mind), playing with their cat around their living room, or taking an adventure on one of Lane County's many beautiful hiking trails. You can do it at any time, or multiple times (your pets will love it!) Take a photo or video and then tag us on social media using the hashtag #ghsbark.
Your FREE registration gets you an opportunity to receive a Greenhill gaiter, a Bark in the Park sticker, and swag from supporting businesses (when you raise $25 or more for the animals), as well as tools designed to help you reach your fundraising goals. You’ll have access to:
- Motivating coaching emails from our fundraising team.
- A personal Participant Center loaded with email templates and heartwarming animal stories for you to share.
- Your very own Fundraising Guide filled with tips and tricks.
- And more!
Every dollar you raise will make a lifesaving difference for animals in need!
As our community works together to overcome this challenging time, animals continue to enter our care every single day. They’re relying on us for shelter, medical care, new homes and so much more — and your participation will help give each animal a second chance.
Bark in the Park has gone virtual!
This event has been rerouted from Alton Baker Park to the comfort of your neighborhood, local hiking trail, or living room. Creativity is encouraged! Take a photo or video of you getting active with your pet and then tag us on social media using the hashtag #ghsbark.
Pledges are optional but encouraged. 100% of your sponsorships and pledges go directly to help the animals at Greenhill Humane Society. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to help care for and find homes for over 3,600 pets in 2021. Join us as we make this goal a reality!
