Fort Steilacoom Park, 8714 87th Ave. SW, Lakewood 

Join thousands of animal advocates and their furry friends for the Humane Society’s 28th annual Paws in the Park featuring the Dog-A-Thon. Held at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood, this fun, family event has something for everyone: lakeside and scenic trails; dozens of pet-related booths; demonstrations; contests; food vendors and much more. Best of all, the walk benefits pets in need at the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County. Last year, the event raised more than $300,000, and we need your help to raise $325,000 in 2018.
