SPRINGFIELD — The annual Bark in the Park took place May 11 and brought pet owners and pets together to support PAWSibilities, the Humane Society of Greater Akron.

Among the participants was Springfield Township resident Zach Zeisig, 7, who is shown above as he tugs at his Labrador mixed breed rescue dog, Abby, before the 1-mile walk alongside Springfield Lake.

The event also featured a Pet Expo with booths representing animal organizations. Orville resident Abigail Griffin, 11, is pictured below in the photo at near left, with Akron resident Alyssa Hall as they share a cuddly Yorkie Poo named Zoie during the expo.
