The 6th Annual WOOFstock and Adopt-a-thon is coming up June 10th at the Prescott Valley Civic Center, in beautiful Prescott Valley. It’s going to be a great time on the cool grass. There are several new editions to WOOFstock this year.
First, bring your dog and let them come try out the Lure Coursing arena, courtesy of The Brittney Rescue of Arizona. Coursing was developed for hounds such as the afghan, the saluki and the greyhound, however any dog can experience the thrill of the chase in this fast paced, off leash environment.
Second, canine athletes from around the quad-city area and beyond will be at WOOFstock demonstrating all disciplines of canine sports. Any dog with basic obedience training can start a career in canine sports. The sports are fun, challenging and give you the opportunity to spend constructive time with your pooch.
Third, we have joined with the American Cancer Society this year to present Bark for a Cure. Our dogs do a lot for us and during WOOFstock many will be walking with their owners to Bark for a Cure. Please see the cover story on page 10 for more details on signing up. There will be 2 walks, one at 10:30 and another at 1:30.
There will be pet products companies giving samples and information. The kissing booth is back with all proceeds going to Gentle Hearts Service Dogs. Come get a smooch from a workin’ pooch. Gentle Hearts Service Dogs provide service dogs to autistic and PTSD patients throughout Arizona.
As always there will be plenty of lovable pups looking for their forever homes. If you’ve spent all winter thinking about expanding your family, WOOFstock is a great place to find that forever companion. We expect more than 25 rescues from around the state will be at the Prescott Valley Amphitheater. Join us for all the fun Saturday June 10th from 10-4 PM. It will be a howling good time.
