Come to the animal lovers event of the year!!
Be sure to attend DogFest, THE animal lovers event of the year, this Saturday, October 6th. It’s fun for the entire family! DogFest, a dog day extravaganza for pet lovers and pet owners is the event’s fifth year celebrating the love of dogs and benefiting animals in need of care and refuge at our 365 acre no-kill shelter.
Thousands of people are expected to gather on our grounds in Reisterstown to participate in games, contests, demonstrations, and kid activities. What makes this event so unusual, though, is that these activities are not just for the families who attend. They’re also for the dogs!
This is the opportunity for pet lovers to watch Rover knock down 10 pins in a game of bowling! Enjoy the antics of dogs trying to find their owners in a game of Hide ‘n Seek or playing Musical Sit ‘n Stay. Dog owners can have their pet tested for the AKC Canine Good Citizenship Award or get some information at the Ask the Vet and Ask the Trainer Booths. Decide for yourself if the celebrity judges make the right call for the Best Costume contest, Best Trick, or Best Kisser. Watch Shakespeare scenes performed about our furry friends or challenge your own dog with an agility course! There’s even swimming for dogs!
Sit back while enjoying a delicious treat from one of the many food vendors and get some hearty chuckles as every type dog imaginable parades by you decked out in their best costume regalia. Stroll around our wildlife preserve and explore the various vendors and information booths. And of course, come inside the kennels and meet the many dogs and cats who are staying at the Baltimore Humane Society’s no-kill shelter while waiting to find their forever homes.
Don’t forget the kids! They’ll have a blast in our Play ‘n Learn area jumping on the moonbounce, getting free animal face paintings by Fantasy Faces, and watching or participating in playlets about animals by the Shakespeare Factory.
NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES TO BE AT EVENT.
