The dogs have a great time along with their human companions!
Our annual family and pet friendly event featuring a 3K and 5K run/walk with the family dog was a hit this year. The event included dog costume contests, Muttsical chairs, demonstrations, specialty vendors, plus entertainment, raffles and pet licensing.
In 2017, we raised over $27,300 from donations, vendors, sponsors, registrations, and in-kind donations. Because of Barkfest & Rover Romp, we are able to help hundreds of lost and homeless animals each year. Over 2,000 animals were able to receive medical supplies and microchips. Each animal receives individual care and attention to allow them to be adoptable. They receive the basics of food, shelter and comfort. Volunteers and staff provide training while walking the dogs three times a day.
