Woofstock is a must attend event for dogs and their owners! Woofstock was started in 2010 as a way to celebrate and help support the Buddy Dog Humane Society of Sudbury’s 50th Anniversary, and raise awareness for animal rescue! It was so successful that it’s been held every year since.
For those who are not familiar, the Buddy Dog Humane Society is a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to finding permanent homes for all the animals (dogs and cats) in the shelter. The Society is incorporated under Massachusetts law as a non-profit, no-kill shelter!
On September 27th, from 11:00-3:00 p.m., adults, children and four-legged friends should go to the Hudson Elks Pavillion (at 99 Park Street in Hudson, Massachusetts), and you’re sure to have an afternoon of fun!
Some of what you’ll be able to do: games, prizes, raffles, face painting, and lots of demonstrations. In fact, a very popular one will be returning again this year–one given by the K9 Unit of the Ashland Police! There will also be animal care talks from veterinarians and behaviorists. The band Secret Evil Plan will be playing all day; and of course, food for two and 4-legged friends!
Did you rescue a pet? Everyone loves to see the dogs with their new forever families! All friendly, social dogs should attend Woofstock, but if your dog is too shy for this big event, please come and bring photos to the Buddy Dog tent to share! Representatives from the Buddy Dog rescue partners will be there: Save A Sato and Sato Angels (Puerto Rico) and Dog4U (South Carolina). In addition, there will be other rescue groups, shelters, and animal care organizations.
The $7 admission donation requested of adults for Woofstock will go towards the medical care and food needed for the animals at the Buddy Dog Humane Society. All children under the age of 12 and all dogs are admitted free of charge.
If anyone has photos that they would like to share with my readers, I’ll give you all the photo credit, and post them here!
