The event will conclude with A Furry, Furry Fest, an outdoor event on Sunday, October 24.  It will be open to the public and their well-behaved, leashed dogs. 

Lazy Dog Ice Cream will  have sweet treats for dogs and their people, we’ll have food and beverages for sale; our local dancin’ DJ, Jamie Hogan, will entertain us with music and dancing (you can dance with your dog if you want to), we’ll have an animal communicator to chat with your pets about their inner-most thoughts and Tom Wilson to demonstrate acupressure, massage, cranial sacral and Reiki.  There will be a photo booth, amazing raffle items to take a chance on, doggie bags for the pooches, tennis ball bobbing, Treat Alley to challenge your dog’s scent for treats abilities and a special event at noon you won’t want to miss!      

We are thankful to our top-level sponsors: Judy and Jerry Wilson, Clare McDowell,  Carolyn Niehaus, Chris Donahue, Diana Bailey, Incredible Pets, Interwest Insurance Services and Animal Save’s Board of Directors.

Proceeds from A Furry, Furry Fest will help fund AnimalSave’s animal rescue and welfare programs.  AnimalSave’s primary programs include the low-cost spay/neuter clinic that has altered over 27,000 dogs and cats in the past thirteen years and its foster/adoption program that rescues and finds homes for more than 250 cats each year.
