The SPCA of Central Florida is celebrating big this year. Their 20th anniversary of “Paws in the Park” will feature Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog.” The fundraiser is scheduled for February 8, 2014, at Lake Eola Park from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

There is a lot in store for participants that day. The fundraising walk kicks off the event at 9 a.m. The free dog training series "Positively, Live!" starts at 10 a.m. located in the Walt Disney Amphitheater.

Walt Disney World Resort will host the Disney Kids and Family Zone. The activities are meant to be fun for the entire family including their pets.

The famous Splash Dogs will also be participating in dog diving competitions for the first time at special dog diving facilities built just for Paws in the Park.

A $10 Canine Sports pass can be purchased at the event which allows your dog to participate in all of the Canine Sports activities.

"We are pulling out all of the stops to celebrate the powerful relationships between dogs and people for the 20th anniversary of Paws in the Park," said Kerri Burns, CEO, SPCA of Central Florida. "More than 5,000 human party animals are anticipated joining in the fun at this year's event, which for the first time includes a Food Truck Rally at Lake Eola."

Walt Disney World Resort, Merial, and Banfield Pet Hospital join with WFTV's 9 Family Connection and the Orlando Sentinel as Leader of the Pack sponsors for the 2014 event.

The special day-long programming from the amphitheater stage includes Joel Slaven's Professional Animals at Noon and Atlanta's K9 Cops with Victoria Stilwell at 2:00 pm.

Happy Paws Pet Resort is hosting the Canine Sports Arena with both agility and fly-ball demonstrations with public participation opportunities. Petango is sponsoring a $10 microchip clinic for dogs during the event.

Paws in the Park is free to attend. Those who wish to participate in the fundraising walk should register online here. Specialty vendors will also be featured at the event.

The SPCA of Central Florida provides shelter for animals in crisis, disaster response efforts, and "Meals on Wheels" for dogs and cats in need. Their efforts help thousands of animals each year. Their programs are supported entirely by donations from the communities that they serve, and they receive no funding from national organizations. Visit to learn more.
