The sun is out, so grab your dog and get ready for the 25th Annual Bark in the Park, Greenhill Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year. Greenhill has a goal of raising $120,000, which will provide care for about 3,000 of Lane County’s lost, neglected, abandoned and challenged pets. This year, the nonprofit says they expect 1,200 people and their pets to take over Alton Baker Park. And you can do this in more ways than just running. From 5 to 7 pm Thursday, May 17, Ninkasi will donate $1 from every pint sold to Greenhill. Sweet Cheeks Winery will sell a special Winery Dog Series at the finish line. After the race, from 5 to 7 pm Sunday, May 20, Laughing Planet will donate 15 percent of all purchases at the Willamette location to Greenhill.
