London, ON (April 29, 2020) – Humane Society London & Middlesex (HSLM) has announced the cancelation of the 2020 Bark in the Park Festival presented by Virtue Realty, scheduled for June 14th, 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
“The safety of our community is our most important consideration,” says Steve Ryall, HSLM Executive Director. “We felt this was the appropriate decision considering the continued State of Emergency in the province and the uncertainty around when social gatherings will be permitted to take place.”
HSLM staff continue to plan for upcoming events, including the first annual “Sit. Stay. Bid!” Online Auction which will run June 15th – June 21st, 2020. The online auction provides local businesses the opportunity to promote their goods and services by contributing gift cards. Event information can be found online: www.hslm.ca/sit-stay-bid/
HSLM continues to follow the guidelines set out by the province of Ontario and the various health authorities, and look forward to resuming regular business once it has been deemed safe to do so.
