And if you haven't found your furry BFF just yet, don't be
discouraged, we will have people from THE BEST animal rescue groups that
this Region (and surrounding area) has to offer! And they are bringing
their Game Faces people.....prepare to be educated in a way you never
thought possible.....this is the BEST of the BEST.
If you're looking for a little furry action but don't want the
commitment - there's always the option of being a Foster to those
fur-balls whilst they wait for their forever homes. It's like being a
grandparent really - the rescues pay for their food, vet care, meds,
anything they need and you just provide a caring, safe home, maybe teach
some manners, reap all the paws and kisses, and eventually get to send
them off to a happy home and do it all over again.
How cool is THAT??
Here's a simple rundown of some of the planned activities:
Saturday - Go Fido, it's your BARKday! - celebrating all that is
doggies and birthdays...it's PAWTY time. - come out with your furkid(s)
and celebrate their birthday with games, prizes, treats, contests,
fashion shows, bobbing for wieners, giveaways, toys, all culminating in
one big Happy BARKday Cake sing along. - - Shop till you drop with
vendors, sales, displays, demonstrations, Farmers Market, fresh food,
and so much more we have to keep some of it a surprise for now.
*Airbrush tattoos for the furkids * Groomer providing nail trims ....at
our festival your dog(s) gets to be the STAR ATTRACTION! - Agility
Playground and so much fun your pup will sleep for
days! No more standing around watching the action - now you ARE the
Sunday - Love is in the Air! - a slower paced day celebrating the
joining of two hearts in HOWLING MUTTRIMONY. - That's right, full-on,
vows and all, dress and tux, Doggie I-DO's. - Be a guest at the only
canine wedding in Durham Region. - Enjoy the decor, flowers, aisle, and
be a witness to two sweet souls sharing a treat and sealing the deal.

And if that isn't enough.....for those of you who are tsk-tsking to
yourselves because you don't have or (gasp) aren't interested in being
owned by a dog.....we've got you covered too......The Farmers Market is
reason enough to pop in and say hello BUT we are lining up the most
diverse, talented, interesting, fun, friendly, affordable, creative and
stylish VENDORS that it will knock your socks off! Maybe you should just
wear flip flops, just in case. You will not want to miss this....
