Dog lovers gathered in Sylvester today to take part in, "Bark in the Park."

There were dogs and people everywhere at the Best Friends Humane Society's event.

Organizers held a "beauty contest" and the "best tail wagger" contest.

While most people brought their own pet, the goal was to find homes for the animals without one.

The Humane society relies on donations and support to provide care for the animals.  President of the Best Friends Humane Society, Shelly McPhau said, "we have over sixty dogs in our shelter and we need to find homes for them."

The day was already a success by lunchtime as two dogs were adopted. There are still plenty more in need of a good home.
