11AM – 4PM 
Ninth Street & Carleton Street, Berkeley


This event is free to attend and open to the public. Dogs (on leashes) and fearless felines are welcome!


The 2nd annual Bark (& Meow) Around the Block is an Adopt-A-Thon and family-friendly Street Fair. In addition to the many dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that Berkeley Humane will adopt out for free* to loving homes, the event will feature a dozen other rescues from the Bay Area, great food, beer, wine, live music, entertainment, kids games (including a bouncy house!), exciting raffle prizes, and more!


Join us for the event and add a new, furry member to your family. Or, come enjoy the fun festivities with family and friends and show your support for shelter animals!


The event is preceded by a Hero Walk Around the Block that puts the “fun” in fundraising. Participants can make a donation, join the walk and be the hero of a homeless dog or cat hoping to be adopted on this day! Your participation helps underwrite adoption fees and eliminates the financial barrier that might otherwise prevent a deserving animal from going to a loving home.


Pre-register for the HERO WALK here, and check-in between 9:30-10AM at 2700 Ninth Street, Berkeley, on Sunday, September 21. Your donation of $50 or more entitles you to a goody bag upon check-in that contains an exclusive Bark (& Meow) Around the Block t-shirt—our "thank you" for your generosity. The walk begins at 10AM.


*Berkeley Humane will waive all adoption fees for qualified adopters. Standard application and screening processes apply.
