Please join Black and Orange for MARS Petcare’s 4th Annual “Adoption on the Lawn” on Sunday, September 11 from noon to 5 pm. The event, which is held on the lawn in front of MARS at 5115 Fisher Road, will feature adoptable dogs and cats (just a note–we do not do same day adoptions–all of our normal adoption policies will stand and no cats will be able to go home with adopters the day of the event), music, kids activities, product giveaways, and prizes.
The adoption event will feature 15 local shelters and rescues including several purebred dog rescues (Central Ohio Greyhound Rescue, Columbus Cocker Rescue, Ohio Pug Rescue, and Ohio Rottweiler Rescue). Additionally, there will be several cat groups (Cat Welfare, Colony Cats, Cozy Cat Cottage, as well as B and O), and shelters that feature both dogs and cats (Citizens for Humane Action, Franklin County Dog Shelter, Humane Society of Clark County, Powell Animal Welfare Society, and Stop the Suffering).
This is our second year participating in this event. We LOVE MARS. They are so good to us, donating food to help our caregivers and our Pet Food Pantry, and supporting us in so many other ways.
We hope you will come out and support MARS and us at this fun event.

For the fifth year, Columbus Dog Connection will be presenting WooFstock 2011 on Sunday, August 28, from 12-5 pm to raise funds to help save animals in the Columbus area and prevent unwanted litters from being born through spay and neuter services.
The event will be held rain or shine at Camp Mary Orton located just north of 270 at 7925 North High Street in Worthington. Tickets are $15 with kids 12 and under FREE.
There will be lots of vendors, several rescue groups, tons of food, and great raffle items, including a large screen television. Spayed and neutered dogs can hike with their humans through trails in Camp Mary Orton leading all the way to the Olentangy River. Additionally, the dogs can cool off in the Ice House, a mountain of ice providing relief from the August “dog days.” You can also spin “The Big Wheel,” just like on The Price is Right to win WooFstock t-shirts, toys, or other surprises.
So bring your dogs, a blanket, and chairs to enjoy “1 Day of Dogs & Music.” WooFstock is just like the original Woodstock, except there are dogs instead of drugs!

BarkPark is holding a giant yard sale coupled with an adoption event and a dog wash on Saturday, August 20 from 9 am to 3 pm. Over twenty-eight animal welfare organizations will be participating with 100% of the proceeds going to help homeless animals.
Besides tons of booths featuring new and used treasures, there will also be a concession stand, a dog wash and nail trim from noon to 3 pm, and dog friendly shopping (dogs on leashes are welcome to browse, too!).
BarkPark is located at 6755 Merchant Road in Delaware (about 5 minutes from Plain City).
We hope you’ll join Black and Orange at this first ever event. All of the rescue groups will be lined up along the grass next to the driveway at BarkPark. It should be a fun and exciting day to help animals in central Ohio.
