Isle of Wight County Parks and Recreation held its inaugural “Bark in the Park” fundraiser on June 4 to benefit Isle of Wight County’s, Franklin’s and Southampton County’s Animal Services departments, as well as the Isle of Wight County Humane Society. The event raised over $1,500 in cash donations and collected another $1,500 worth of supplies.

The event, held at Nike Park in Carrollton, featured a pet fashion show, face painting, therapy dog visits, on-site pet adoptions and animal-related vendors. There, Isle of Wight and Franklin Animal Services were able to adopt out 10 cats and dogs.
