Lewisville Animal Services will hold its annual Paws in the Park adoption event on Saturday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Lewisville Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, 995 E. Valley Ridge Blvd., across from Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park.

Paws in the Park is a free, large-scale adoption event incorporating fun for all ages throughout the day, featuring on–site adoptions, rescue organizations, educational opportunities, pet-related vendors, food trucks, animal demonstrations, and a “Silent Pawction” to raise money for animal care. There also will be plenty of fun things for pets and pet owners, such as a photo booth, ball pit, and chalk walk.

The 3rd annual Wiener Dog & Wanna-Be Wiener Dog Race starts at 9:45 a.m. A weenie dog applicant must have the appearance of a dachshund. A wannabe applicant must be a small dog (under 15 lbs.) of any breed or mix that wishes it were a dachshund and wants to race. The winners from each category will compete in a final race. Trophies will be awarded for each category and a grand prize trophy will be given to the fastest racer of the day. Shot records and current rabies vaccinations are required for all racing applicants. A $24 donation is requested from race participants, but is not required.

Applications for the race can be given over the phone at 972.219.3478 or online.
