If you’re looking for a reminder as to why dogs are some of the best animals on the planet, stay with us – this article is a great start.

It’s also about something of huge importance that warms our hearts: Helping adoptable animals find their forever home.

On Saturday, August 10, the Toronto Humane Society will be hosting their annual Paws in the Park fundraising event at Woodbine Park, and it’s set to be the biggest one yet. This year, the society has hopes of seeing 40 dogs adopted right from the park on Queen Street.

If you’re planning on adopting, make sure you get in early! Adoptions will open at 11 am.

So if you’ve got the time and love in your life for a forever best friend, you know where to go this August. But we must prewarn you: You’ll likely find some of the sweetest, charming canine pals you’ll ever meet.

Paws in the Park helps raise a significant portion of the annual operating costs for the Toronto Humane Society and aids the organization with keeping its doors open for animals in need.

Right when you thought Paws in the Park couldn’t get any more special, the event is a fun day out for the entire family. Taste delicious eats at the food stands for humans (and check out the ones for the doggies, too), pop into the pet photo booth, and explore the vendor village.

There’s going to be face painting for the kids (and adults, too!), prize giveaways, entertainment, and you’ll also have the chance to join a scavenger hunt. Not to mention the doggy training sessions which might be the cutest thing you experience this summer.
