About Bark in the Park
Bark in the ParkTM is a fundraising event hosted by the Naglee Park neighborhood's Campus Community Association (CCA). All proceeds benefit the CCA and local animal charities.

About the Campus Community Association
Naglee Park is a historic San Jose neighborhood developed on the estate of Brig. General Henry Morris Naglee, a Civil War veteran and prominent California pioneer. The Campus Community Association grew out of Naglee Park to become a strong advocate for neighborhood values in San Jose. As a result, the Naglee Park neighborhood is at the forefront on issues affecting the downtown neighborhoods and San Jose as a whole.

About the Humane Society Silicon Valley
The Humane Society Silicon Valley is one of the largest animal shelters on the West Coast, caring for more than 28,000 animals last year alone. Approximately, 91 percent of the animals placed for adoption find new homes. The shelter pets benefit directly from the funds raised at Bark in the Park.

About the San Jose Animal Care Center
The City of San José created the Animal Care & Services division in 2001. With the completion of the City of San José's new Animal Care Center, the City of San José itself is now providing shelter and field services for San José residents and for residents of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas and Saratoga.
