Paws in the Park celebrates third year
Rocky Mount native Ellen Matthews owns three beagles. Her love for her “spoiled” beagles, as she describes them, as well as for all dogs, has prompted her second year as a participant on the Paws in the Park committee.

“I feel like dogs are often abandoned or mistreated by society, and I have been feeling the need to do something for dogs,” says Matthews. “So, I am trying to save more dogs by working with Paws in the Park.”

2013 marks the third year for Paws in the Park, a program organized by the City of Rocky Mount’s Parks and Recreation Department, which provides an opportunity for Rocky Mount residents to promote responsible dog ownership, a pet park and healthy pets. Scheduled to be held on Sat., April 6, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sunset Park, several activities will be held for pets. Events will include a pet parade, and contests such as pet look-alike, best dress, best trick, best costume, cutest, ugliest and biggest dog.

Other contests are the best beggar contest, biscuit toss, musical chairs with pets and their owners, dog bobbing and much more.

“The contests are growing for dog owners and dogs,” says Matthews. “Paws in the Park is just a warm, fuzzy event for you and your dog. It’s just another way to enjoy your relationship with your pet.”

The City of Rocky Mount’s Parks and Recreation Department is also currently seeking sponsors, vendors and volunteers to assist with this year’s Paws in the Park. For more information on how you can assist the community in making this event a success, call 972-1151 or visit http://www.rockymountnc.gov/parks/.

In the event of inclement weather, Paws in the Park will be held on Sat., April 20, 2013.
