Have a howling good time at ÒWoofstockÓ
The coolest humans and dogs will unite at the grooviest of events in an effort to save homeless animals when Furry Friends Rescue (FFR) presents their annual ÒWoofstockÓ event.
Fremont-based FFR is a non-profit, all-volunteer companion animal rescue organization which has saved over 12,000 animals since 1998. They are dedicated to fostering and placing animals in permanent, loving homes, and depend solely on donations to make this happen. ÒWoofstockÓ allows animals lovers and canines of all kinds to enjoy a great day out and help FFR continue their good work.
The outstanding Mountain Winery location offers beautiful views of the Silicon Valley, and attendees will enjoy wine tasting, browsing vendor and artist booths specializing in all things animal, Dog Adoption Showcase, silent auction and raffle, and live music from Tin Man from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and West Grand Boulevard from 2 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Diane Dwyer of NBC Bay Area News will serve as emcee for the Howl-loween Dog Costume Contest from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. where dogs can win titles such as Grooviest, Cutest, Unique, Funniest, and Group; Best Dog will be awarded the grand prize.
