10th Annual Bark in the Park

DUNCAN, Okla._Dog-lovers flocked to Duncan’s Fuqua Park Saturday for the Stephens County Humane Society's 10th Annual Bark in the Park.

This is the Humane Society's biggest fund raising event. They have a goal of raising $50,000 this year, which helps pay for spaying and neutering, along with other medical assistance for their animals. The money raised today came from donations, dog contests, raffles, as well as bake sales and t-shirt sales.

Carol Conway has never missed a bark in the park and says each year the event is more special than the last.

"It’s always fun to see. All the animals perform, do different things, dress up, and the people, everybody is so dog oriented it's wonderful," Conway said.

Conway said she has four dogs, all of which she has adopted at past bark in the park events.

There were also 30 dogs up for adoption today, and while Conway didn't take one home, at least 12 did find their forever homes.
