Join the Sacramento SPCA for the 18th Annual Doggy Dash and Bark at the Park Festival on Saturday, June 4th in beautiful William Land Park. An estimated 5,000 animal enthusiasts will gather both with and without their canine companions to raise funds for animals sheltered at the Sacramento SPCA. For 17 years, two- and four-legged participants have attended this event, creating a tradition in Sacramento and transforming Doggy Dash into one of the biggest “can’t miss” events of the year!

Make sure to stay after the Dash for our Bark at the Park Festival, where you can enter your canine pal in the Pup Show, high-flying Disc Contest, or our ever-popular Pug Races! Visit with pet-friendly businesses, learn about Sacramento-area animal rescue organizations, or just have lunch while watching all the action.

Register today! Whether you choose to bring a canine companion or invite a two-legged friend, mark your calendar and join us for the Doggy Dash and Bark at the Park Festival and help make a difference in the lives of homeless animals sheltered at the Sacramento SPCA. Register as a solo participant, start a team or join an existing team.
