One of the best parts of being a dog owner is getting to meet other people who love their dogs just as much as you do. There is nothing like a group of like-minded people getting together. I've always thought that animal lovers are a special breed. Our bond runs deep. It's one of the reasons why I was excited to hear about a great festival taking place this September, Pooch-A-Palooza.
Held at the Topsfield Fairgrounds in Topsfield, MA on September 6th and 7th, this two-day outdoor festival is expected to draw over 8,000 people. The goal is to bring together dog overs and dogs in a safe and fun environment while also helping raise money for animals:
Your support will help us raise much needed charitable donations to benefit PAWS New England, a local rescue organization who has two missions:
1. Rescue abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs from high-kill shelters and desperate situations, provide them with veterinary care and much needed TLC, and bring them to New England where we place them in safe, loving homes.
2. Reduce and eventually end the 90% euthanization rate at the Tipton County Animal Shelter in Millington, Tennessee through community education on spay and neutering of pets.
The festival is family-centered and will host activities such as pup playground, kids play zone, photo palace, and pooch pavilion in which trained pups will perform their amazing skills. There will also be a kids' activity zone, pooch contests and much puppy swag! Festival takes place 10am-4pm, September 6th and 7th.
