Henrico County Recreation and Parks

Dogs and people alike had a great time at Bark in the Park—this year was the most successful ever! We raised over $24,000 which is twice as much as last year. Over 20 people created fundraising pages and collected pledges to benefit HHS. We are so grateful for all of their support! In addition to raising money for the animals in our care, we also found loving homes for 8 dogs and puppies.


Congratulations to our Top Fundraisers:

Top Individual Fundraiser, Mary Beth Williams
