Humane Society Calumet Area (HSCA) invites the community to attend its 24th annual Paws in the Park, a family- and pet-friendly pet parade/walk-a-thon and vendor fair. The event takes place on Saturday, June 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Main Square Park in Highland, Ind. 

 

Vendors of all types—pet, product, arts and crafts, and vegetarian food vendors, as well as service providers, demonstrators and more—are invited to participate in the event. Vendors will be offered a 10-by-10 ft. space. Sponsorship opportunities also are available.

 

Free and open to the public, this annual event will feature entertainment, contests, a dog agility course, games, treats and more. In honor of the organization’s 75th anniversary, HSCA will host its first pet parade down the sidewalks of downtown Highland. Participants can dress up their pet; decorate a wagon, stroller or cart; and join the fun.

 

Prizes for parade entries will be awarded to the top three most creative entries as decided by our judges. The entry with the largest number of human participates also will win a prize.

 

The pet parade/walk-a-thon begins at 10:15 a.m. with registration from 9 to 10 a.m. Walkers can register individually or as a team to raise funds for the animals of HSCA. Leashed pets with a current rabies vaccine are welcome to participate in the walk and attend the event.

 

Walkers are asked to raise pledges and can earn pledge prizes including a mini button, magnet, t-shirt, tote, hoodie and $50 gift certificate at various pledge levels.

 

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities also are available. Proceeds from the event help provide medical care and basic necessities for the animals of HSCA.
