WHAT WOULD OUR LIVES BE LIKE WITHOUT ANIMALS?

For a town whose nickname is “Bark City,” it was only a matter of time before we focused on Park City’s four-legged history. From dogs dressed in Depression-era doll clothes to their own modern, designer duds, Park City has had a special relationship with their pets.  However, animals have served more than emotional and social needs. 100 years ago, miners used mules underground. Even today, animal like dogs and horses work as therapy animals.

Come learn stories of Park City Pets–like how the Dog Parade began, and how one candidate for city council ran on the “More Dogs on Main Street” ticket–and add your own! Sculpt your animal and add them to the Pet Mobile, and count them in the Pet Census.
