Don't miss Paws in the Park at Shawnee Mission Park

I have written before about Shawnee Mission Park's wonderful off leash dog park and beach and what a great place it is to play with your pet.  However, this fun event for pets and their people takes place at the regular park beach inside the main park, located at 7900 Renner Road in Shawnee Mission, KS.

Save the date of June 19th for the  7th annual Paws in the Park event that benefits a local shelter. Cost is $15.00 for the first dog and $5.00 for each additional dog.

The trails are open for dog walking and meeting new friends.  Dogs can also take a refreshing dip in the lake.  Lots of contests and prizes for the pups like Bobbing for Dogs and a bone scavenger hunt. KC Disc Dogs will be putting on a show and a Frisbee challenge takes place. Guardian Pet Care will be one of the vendors at Paws in the Park giving treats out to the visitors.  Other local businesses will be sharing their wares as well!

Be sure to visit Rescue Alley to check out the different rescue shelters in the area and look into adoptable pets. Many local Kansas City shelters will be there!

Pawsin the Park is held rain or shine!  Registration forms are available here
