Home > 2013 Carnival of the Dogs


The Board of Pilgrim Bark Park wants to send a loud woof to all those who helped make Carnival of the Dogs 2013 a success in spite the 90 degree temperature! Someone once said, it takes a village, and I know she was talking about putting on a fund-raiser! We received donations for our silent auction from businesses as far away as Orleans, and from businesses that have no connection to dogs. But they all shared one thing, the desire to support this year-round community resource. THANK YOU
