On Saturday, Feb. 10, Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary held its annual Puppy Love 5K fundraiser at Acreage Community Park. The fundraiser featured an appearance by celebrity pup Mr. Bean, featured in this year’s Puppy Bowl. Originally from Barky Pines, Mr. Bean has no front legs but is an amazing dancer who has now found a permanent home with an amazing family. Many people who attended brought their precious fur babies to run or walk with them. Some dogs were even dressed up for a costume contest. The day also included raffle tickets, dog treats, toys and special drinks. Learn more about Barky Pines at PHOTOS BY ERIN DAVISSON
