As you may remember, I adopted Tavish from a local rescue group called Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA). It just so happens that FOHA is hosting a big event on September 29 (one week from today), so I wanted to tell you about it. It’s called Barktoberfest: A Purrfect Pet Celebration, and it’s going to be lots of fun. If you’re in the DC or northern Virginia area, consider stopping by!
(Bonus plug: I help with the FOHA Twitter account, and I’ll be live-tweeting from the event. What are you waiting for? Go follow!)
In addition to food, vendors, and the usual festival-type stuff, there are a ton of great events planned, including:
- The Mutt Strut – A one-mile walk (with or without a dog) to raise money for FOHA’s dogs and cats. You can register for the Strut here. If you would rather relax that morning, you can support one of the other walkers or teams that have signed up.
- Raffles and a silent auction – There are tons of awesome items available!
- Music and entertainment, including a pet costume contest, an agility demonstration, and an owner/dog lookalike contest!
Even better, oodles of adoptable FOHA dogs and cats will be at the event. Come out and meet them!
