Bark at the Park
The annual Bark in the Park 5k and 1K Fun Run and walk for people and pets was held on October 3 at Forsythe Park in Monroe, Louisiana to benefit ORVAL. Some of the attractions this year were live music, sponsor booths, gift bags, door prizes, trophies for winners and t-shirts for both two-legged and four-legged participants.
Bottled water and dog biscuits were available for canines as well as a K-9 Kissing Booth. Participants without pets were able to walk or run in memory of a beloved companion. The ORVAL fund provides care for ill or injured animals with families or shelters who cannot afford needed medical procedures.
