For the Dogs...
*Agility Course
Ever wonder if your dog would jump through a hoop, walk on a plank, or go through a tunnel? Here is your chance to find out! We'll have people on hand to show your dog the way.

*Mini-Games Quest with prizes
Can your pup complete the mini-games...or at least attempt to complete them? If so, he/she will get a very special prize!

*Low-Cost Microchipping
In case your dog doesn't have a microchip, we'll be offering this service on-site at a reduced cost.

Just in case your dog has been needing a manicure...nail-trimmings will be provided (any donation amount accepted) for your pup(s) all day!

*Tarot Card Readings
Mistitarot, who often reads the cards of our shelter animals, will be at Dog Day to do Doggy Tarot Card Readings for your pups!

For the Family...
*Craft and Vendor Fair
Don't miss this large craft and vendor fair featuring local artisans, animal care businesses, and other nonprofit/community groups. This portion of the event is free to attend and many vendors will have merchandise for sale!

*Bouncy House
Thanks to our sponsors, Primetime Party Zone, we'll have a premier bouncy house combo unit with a slide, climbing wall, mini tunnel, and jumping area! It's sure to be tons of fun!

*Craft/Activity Stations
We'll have some craft activities for kids so when the day is done, you'll have a new art piece or functional, hand made, dog toy to take home!

Food & Refreshments
Make sure you bring your appetite! We'll have lunch options, snacks, and beverages available for purchase.

We're working hard on these details as we speak so check back for a complete schedule of short, informative, and entertaining demonstrations for you and your dog(s) like a doggy fashion show featuring adoptable dogs from our shelter!

*Photo Opportunities
Pet and family photographer, Lauren MacDonald, will be on site for pet photo sessions!

*10th Annual Dog Day T-Shirt!
Here is a sneak peak at this year's Dog Day t-shirt! The first 50 registered participants get a free t-shirt. Shirts will also be available for purchase at Dog Day.
