Registration is now open for the 16th Annual Paws in the Park Dog Walk & Festival, one of the largest dog walks in the DC area. A signature event of the Montgomery County Humane Society, held in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg, it raises funds to help homeless, abandoned, and abused animals in Montgomery County.

The Annual Paws in the Park Dog Walk & Festival will take place on Sunday, May 4, from noon to 4 p.m. at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm, 506 S. Frederick Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD, next to Gaithersburg High School. The afternoon includes a 1-mile dog walk starting at 1 p.m., pet games, demonstrations, rescue groups, and a "flealess" market with pet-friendly vendors, food, music, and much more.

Registered walkers are encouraged to invite friends to support them through on-line donations. Supporters can sign up individually or by forming a team that includes family, friends, favorite breed groups, rescue organizations, and companies, as well as teams to honor or remember a pet or even the family cat!. Entrance fees are $20 for an individual, $35 for a family.
