dogfest111833.jpg

DogFest 2009! is right around the corner!

Dogfest 2009 is fast approaching and we are now accepting early vendor and rescue group applications due to the success of last year's Dogfest. Registration is available online (links to the right)!

This is the Baltimore Humane Society's major fundraiser and community event that is one of the largest animal related events in Maryland. The event takes place on Saturday, October 10, 2009 at the beautiful setting of Shawan Downs in Hunt Valley, Maryland. We are expecting 5,000 – 7,000 pet owners to attend this year!

Dogfest is an extravaganza for dogs and their families. It will be a fun-filled day of dog games and contests, agility runs, pet education and tent pavilions that will have many dog rescue groups attending with their pets that are for adoption. We will even have a sandy beach and pools for the dogs to play in along with a puppy pumpkin patch where dogs get to pick their own pumpkins. Once again, we will have the “Best At The Fest” picture contest by Baltimore Dog Magazine to select a cover dog for their edition following Dogfest.

This year, we are also including Equine Rescue groups who are exhibiting horses that are for adoption along with horseback riding for kids and adults. Even the Maryland Jousting Society will have live Jousting Demonstration since it is the official sport of Maryland. Due to popular demand, we are expanding our Cat Adoption pavilion and will also be running our 5K-9 Fun Run where pet owners get to run with their dog.

101.9 Lite FM, one of Baltimore's most popular radio stations is our radio media sponsor again and will be broadcasting live during the event to promote Dogfest with their other CBS radio and television stations.

Email for more info!

Join us for an Extravaganza!

 
Dogfest 2009 (www.dogfest2009.org) is on October 10, 2009 and we are still accepting Animal Rescue and Non-Profit applications for this extravaganza.  You can register on-line at http://www.dogfest2009.org/rescue_groups.html 
There is no charge to exhibit for Rescue Groups and Non-Profit Organization.
We are now expecting 7,000 – 9,000 pet owners to attend this extravaganza for dogs and their families. We are also including Cat and Horse Rescue groups and events this year to help every pet find a home.  
This is the Baltimore Humane Society's (www.baltimorehumane.org) major fundraiser and community event and it is one of the largest animal related events in the East Coast.  The event takes place at Shawan Downs in Hunt Valley, Maryland.    
Dogfest 2009 is a fun-filled day of dog games and contests, dog swimming, agility runs, pet education and tent pavilions that will have many vendors, food concessions and animal rescue groups.  We are also having Pet For Adoption Parades so that every pet can be seen by everyone attending so they could hopefully get applications for adoption. & nbsp;

Pet Detective Training Comes to the League
 Classes May 4 - 8 SearchDog
As evidenced by the lost pet flyers on every telephone pole and the crowded bulletin board in the League's lobby, there is a real need for pet detectives. And believe it or not, there really are pet detectives! They do much more than hang posters for missing pets. Missing Animal Response Technicians (certified pet detectives) adapt behavioral analysis, law enforcement investigative techniques, and the use of search dogs to find lost pets.
People interested in becoming MAR Technicians can sign up for a seminar taught by Missing Pet Partneership and hosted by the League in early May.
To request registration materials call 253-529-3999 or email [ question@pethunters.com ],
Help Make Van Gogh's Life a Masterpiece
 Van Gogh
When she dropped him off at the shelter, Van Gogh's guardian said that although her cat had not seen a veterinarian in years, he was basically healthy. But the Medical Center's intake examination disclosed that=2 0this was not quite the case. Van Gogh tested positive for FIV, the feline equivalent to HIV.
"Most shelters would have put Van Gogh down immediately because FIV can be contagious to other cats through bites and blood," explains the League's long- time cat specialist, Marq Nelson. But the League had another plan in mind for him.
And it may be that you can help.
