Dogs’ Day in the Park is our most exciting community event of the year! The event will be held at the Marge Goodfellow Park in New Freedom, PA on August 25, 2018. Humans and dogs alike are invited to join ARI for a day of fun to raise money for our Sanctuary for Life. The Mutt Strutt, a walk for pets, will be from 9:30 am to 10 am, and the main event will take place 10 am to 4 pm. The day includes 100+ vendors and rescues, games and contests, a flea market, Chinese Raffle, Silent Auction, cruelty-free foods, demonstrations, Rent-A-Dog an much, much more. 

The Mutt Strutt

During the morning of Dogs’ Day from 9:30 am to 10 am, we host The Mutt Strutt, a one-mile walk for animals at the YCR Trail near the park. Walkers are invited to fundraise online or with a traditional paper form. In the past we’ve offered great prizes like cash, televisions and original portraits and more.
