In addition to the adopt-a-thon, Bark (& Meow) Around the Block features great food, beer and wine from local establishments, kids games and activities, live music, vendors with great pet and other products, as well as exciting raffle prizes from local businesses. All proceeds from the event benefit Berkeley Humane and support their mission of providing complete care for homeless animals.
