WHO: Godfrey’s 5As Animal Shelter, along with more than 20 vendors
WHAT: The ninth annual Bark in the Park
WHEN: Sunday, June 7
WHERE: Glazebrook Park, Godfrey
WHY: The event is an opportunity for 5As (Alton Area Animal Aid Association), a nonprofit, no-kill shelter, to raise money for its never-ending need regarding the rescue of animals in need. Guests and their canines were treated to refreshing, mutt-size pools, refreshments and even a Smooch-A-Pooch contest. Next year’s event promises to be bigger than ever in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Bark in the Park. 5As has been helping animals in the area for nearly 60 years; for more information and to see adoptable pets, visit www.fiveas.org.
