Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter’s annual fundraiser is this Saturday (October 20, 2012).
The event begins at 11 a.m. near the pagoda in Patterson Park, but you’re welcome to come earlier and get some exercise.
This year BARCStober Fest, in partnership with Charm City Run, will be featuring its first “Ready…Set…Sniff 5 K Run OR Walk.”
Dogs are welcome to join their humans on the course around Baltimore’s Patterson Park.

BARCStober Fest is Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter’s primary annual fundraiser, and proceeds benefit the more than 12,000 homeless animals that come to BARCS each year.
The fest includes: pet contests (including costume), pet health and welfare specialists, pet blessings, pet micro-chipping, stage entertainment, food vendors, local artists, representatives from other rescue groups, a silent auction, raffles and, of course, some ready-to-be-adopted pets.

If you walk your dog in Baltimore’s Patterson Park — and are wondering where all that talk about off-leash possibilities has led — there’s a chance to find out the latest this Sunday (April 25).
The group pushing for off leash hours or areas is meeting from 3 to 6 p.m. in the field below the pagoda.
The meeting is an opportunity to “learn about where we are in this (long) process, find out about upcoming events, and learn what you can do to help,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
