Get Ready for Your Favourite Festival for Fur-iends!

The Edmonton Humane Society invites you to Pets in the Park on Sunday, June 25 at a whole new space – Buena Vista Park!

Back for another day of festival fun in the sun, we’re ready to paw-ty. Come celebrate the special bond we have with our pets as we raise funds supporting EHS and enjoy a day full of paw-some events and activities for people and pets!

Get ready to leash-up, lace-up and collect pledges to help animals in need!

Form a Pack & Join the EHS Run/Walk for Pets!

Leash-up, lace-up and join us for the EHS Run/Walk for Pets! Register today as either an individual paw-ticipant or with your family, fur-ends or colleagues for a 5 km run or a 2.5 km walk and start gathering pledges in support of animals in our care.

Collect pledges using your own custom fundraising page and for every $10 you raise, you’ll receive a chance to win one of our paw-some prizes on event day – including pet food for a year from Champion Pet Foods! The more you raise, the more chances you’ll have to win and the more our animals will benefit.

New Location, Same Festival Fun!

With Hawrelak Park closed for construction over the next couple of years, we had to relocate the festival directly across the river to Buena Vista Park! The park is located on the north bank of the river, adjacent to Sir Wilfred Laurier Park.

Keep Everyone Safe by Using Our Pet Checklist

We want to make sure that Pets in the Park is a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, including our animal friends. Make sure you review this important checklist before heading to the festival with your animal companion!

  • My pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date.

  • My pet is sociable with other animals and has no past history of aggression.

  • My pet will be properly restrained. For everyone’s safety, no retractable leashes.

  • I will monitor my pet for heat sensitivity.

  • I will pick up after my pet.

  • I will know where the water stations are in case my pet gets thirsty or needs to cool down.
