Bark in the Dark

The Bark in the Dark event festivities will begin on Saturday, October 3 with an in-person kickoff at HSWM. This event will be an opportunity for you to pick up your wag bag, visit fun sponsor booths, sign up to walk or run in the Dog Day Out program, and even meet some adoptable dogs.

The week following the kickoff there will be fun daily themes, voting for the pet costume contest, virtual check-ins, and tons of excitement. Each participant will have the opportunity to pledge to walk the distance of their choice and fundraise from their network to support their efforts and the animals at HSWM.

Tickets cost $35 for adults, $15 for ages 5-21, and kids under 5 are free. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling (616) 791-8089.
