‘Paws in the Park’ to Help Support Local Shelter Pets

Region residents are invited to join Humane Indiana for a day of festivities, food and fun on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at Community Park on Calumet Avenue in Munster, IN from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Events for the day include the Paws in the Park walk, Doggie Fashion Show, and a craft and vendor fair.

The Paws in the Park is a one-mile, pet-friendly walk that starts at 10 a.m. Participants can either walk individually (and with a canine companion) or create their own Paws Walk team. To participate, the fee is $25 per individual. Donate $50 or more, and earn an official Paws in the Park t-shirt, along with other goodies given for participating.

After the walk, it’s the first-ever WestMunster Doggie Fashion Show — all family-friendly, character-themed costumes are welcome, from cinema, literature, and everywhere else outside-the-box. The entrance fee to participate is a $20 donation per dog. The show starts at noon.

While the main activities are taking place, attendees can grab a bite to eat at Butter and Grace or Tomato Bar, get a photo at the photo booth or with the Munster Fire Department Fire Truck, or check out the 50 + pet-friendly vendors at the craft and vendor fair. The Munster Police Department will do a K-9 demonstration before the fashion show as well. A Doggie Pool Party Cooling Station will also be available.

All proceeds benefit the Humane Indiana Shelter and Adoption Center and the Humane Indiana Estelle Marcus Clinic.
