While driving together in 2020, we received a phone call asking for assistance to raise money for a new roof for Avenue 306's Omega House, a nonprofit HIV hospice. Our first inclination was to think about organizations capable of providing funding. Then it occurred to us that we both have experience bringing people together to help those in need. So while driving, we brainstormed ideas on how best to engage our friends and community. It just made sense. People love their pets. People love sharing their pet photos online. And people enjoy going to the park. Thus, Pet Pics in the Park was born.

We invite everyone, and this especially includes your fur babies too, to open your hearts and help us raise funds for a worthy cause. Every dollar helps as we come together to help others in need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Because of you and your support, Pet Pics in the Park remains a fun and loving event for all to share.

“Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.”
