On Saturday, August 4, 2012, Dugan Foundation will present the sixth Woofstock, one part fantastic entertainment and one hundred parts great pets that need a home. It is free for the whole family and a whole lot of fun. Last year over 109 animals found homes at Woofstock in six hours!
Amongst the trees and grass at beautiful Todd Field at the University of Puget Sound, spread out over 30 booths, over two hundred pets are ready to play and meet the family. To make sure you get the right fit, there are fenced meet and greet areas where everyone (including pets) can meet and play with adoptable animals. There are dogs, cats, bunnies, birds and ferrets, spending the day with a constant cycle of family friendly entertainment on stage and off, plus pet related shopping and services.
The local music line up this year is surpassing that of any year before. Maya & Matt, Gina Belliveau, Kim Archer Band, Sevens Revenge and Automatic Theory create a great mix of Celtic, soulful pop, R&B and alternative rock. All of the musicians give their time for the cause – the cause, finding homes for as many homeless animals as we can.
This year’s event celebrates tremendous support and events from the community. We’re featuring WOOFD2 and their Disk Dog Demonstration, as well as a kid zone sponsored by Gig Harbor Academy featuring games, face painting, and more.
Woofstock 2012 is aimed at bringing people together to have a great time and to collaborate in support of developing Washington State into a sustainable, no-kill community. We encourage everyone, including pets, to come and experience the most enjoyable August day for families, and to make it the luckiest day in an adopted animal’s life!
