Paws Around the Park 2017

Everyone had a blast at our super fun Paws Around the Park event! Our dogs met up with their buddies (and we humans, too), and we raised lots of funds.  Thank you to all our donors, members, and sponsors who make it possible for us to keep the North Shore Dog Park a well-maintained, beautiful, and safe place to play!  View the highlights of this great event!
