Bark in the Park

Forsythe Park went to the dogs Oct. 4, during the annual Bark In the Park fundraiser and celebration. Local vendors passed out doggie treats and water for the animal attendees and helped their owners give their furry friends a good time by distributing toys to the pampered pooches.

In addition to the doggie-tainments, humans enjoyed food and fun of their own, with entertainment provided by Stephan Wall, Mike Brown and Brett Barclay. The popular event draws hundreds of dogs and their human families out to Forsythe every year.

For more than 15 years, the Ouachita River Valley Animal League has provided help to people and animals in the community through money raised to pay for veterinary care, animal shelters, rescue groups, and low income families.
