Get Ready for Your Favorite Festival for Fur-iends!
The Edmonton Humane Society is celebrating the 30th anniversary of our Pets in the Park festival, returning in-person to Hawrelak Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 26!
We’ll be raising the rooooooof and celebrating the special bond we have with our amazing animals through plenty of paw-some events and activities for people and pets at our annual fur-tastic festival.
There will be plenty to wag about when you come to visit and help give back to the animals who need us most.
Form a Pack & Join the EHS Run for Pets to Help Animals in Need!
Sign up for the 5km run or the 2.5km walk and you’ll get access to your own fundraising page to customize and start gaining supporters. You could earn some fur-tastic fundraising rewards, such as EHS swag, pet food for a year courtesy of Champion Petfoods, a luxury staycation at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, and more.
Here are some important times you’ll need to know for our EHS Run for Pets:
