167. 2nd Annual Dash for the Dogs at Citizens Park

 It’s the social event of the season – FOR DOGS – and it’s happening tomorrow, Saturday June 9th, at Citizens Park in Barrington.  Animal House Shelter is hosting their second annual Dash for the Dogs 5K and 1 mile fun run for families, dogs and kids and the forecast looks terr-ruff-ic!

Dash for the Dogs is an annual fundraiser that is held to raise much needed funds for the medical bills of special needs animals at Animal House Shelter, one of the closest shelters to Barrington in Huntley, Illinois.

Pooches of all ages and breeds are invited to take part and organizers hope to have a great showing of four-legged-friends (and their humans) to raise awareness and help the cause by “giving every animal a shot!”……

A lone Trumpeter Swan on the Fox River this morning.
