26th Annual Paws in the Park | "Year of the Dog"
Saturday September 22nd | 9AM - 2PM
Community Park, Munster IN

Join Humane Indiana for NWI's pet-friendly event of the year! Now in our 26th year, Paws in the Park is a fun-filled outdoor social event raising awareness and funds for the thousands of animals cared for by Humane Indiana every year. This event is free to the public and filled with enough fun for the whole family.

Let's walk the walk!

Participate in the 1 mile walk and join us for a day of entertainment filled with games, contests, and activities while our vendors fill the park with treasures, tasty goodies, and great food.


Get Involved!

By participating as a vendor, volunteer or sponsor we can do good together. How will you make a difference? 

Sponsorship: We’re honored that you would consider sponsoring Paws in the Park. We go out of our way to visibly and verbally highlight our sponsors to the many in attendance and beyond. More important than spotlighting your business is the opportunity to partner together for the good of Northwest Indiana’s at risk animals. Download your sponsorship form here.

Vendor: We’re honored that you would consider participating as a vendor for Paws in the Park. Our Vendors are able to highlight their businesses and goods while transforming this 1 mile walk into a can’t-miss event. 

Volunteer: We’re honored that you would consider volunteering for Paws in the Park. Our volunteers are truly a blessing and make this event the special occasion that it is. Together we’re making a difference for the thousands of at risk animals that need our help.
