St. Louis (KSDK) -- Hundreds of people grabbed a leash and their best friend for the The Humane Society of Missouri and Purina ONE Bark in the Park walk for animals in Forest Park Saturday morning.
The annual dog walk and fair includes activities for adults, kids and the dogs.
This year's mascot was GI Joe, and his owner Angela Peacock. GI Joe is a five-year-old black Lab mix who has helped Angela deal with arthritic conditions and overcome Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from her service in the U.S. Army overseas.
The profits from Bark in the Park benefits the Humane Society of Missouri Animal-Cruelty Fund, dedicated to preventing animal abuse.
