So...Dog Fest 2010 is right around the corner. Actually, it is next weekend - June 12th & 13th. It will be held at the Voice of America (VOA) Park in West Chester.
Dog Fest originated in 1999 as a community event for West Chester where people could bring their dog or dogs for a day of fun with just a few events and booths, exhibitors and entertainers. Dog Fest, 2010 will draw over 15,000 people and their canine friends, food vendors, 110+ booths, entertainment, demonstrations, contests, and food for the canines and their humans too.
Dog Fest is now hosted by the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter in Butler County which houses dogs and cats until they are adopted into their own forever, loving home.
Dog Fest’s mission is to educate families about the existence of the many wonderful animal shelters and rescues in the greater Cincinnati area that take in stray and abandoned animals from the streets. They are housed, fed, and provided with veterinary care until loving homes can be found for them.
Many rescues exhibit at Dog Fest and dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages are adopted every year. Dog Fest also provides an opportunity for you and your dog to just come out and have fun, where your dog can participate in games, contests, and even a doggie parade!
So...stop by our booth at Dog Fest! When you purchase a collar cover from Slobber Kisses, $1.00 per every collar sold will be donated to PAWS, Inc. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those animals that need us most.
See you next weekend!
