After much discussion with medical staff, veterinarians and our board of directors we have decided to cancel Bark in the Park this year due to the recent outbreak of Kennel Cough & Pneumonia in our area. We are very disappointed as this is our big summer fundraiser raising crucial funds for us. More importantly we will miss the fun & will miss seeing all our alumni dogs come out to celebrate with Stafford Animal Shelter. We will still have the 5K Fun Run @10:00am but ask that you do not bring your dogs this year. We will be updating all the PR and information shortly. Our thoughts are with all the families and pets who have been affected by this terrible virus.
Here are some links from local articles on the outbreak:
