Please mark your calendars for MARS Petcare’s 6th Annual “Adoption on the Lawn” on Sunday, September 15 from noon to 5 pm. The event, which is held on the lawn in front of MARS at 5115 Fisher Road in Columbus, will feature adoptable dogs and cats, music, kids activities, product giveaways, and prizes.
The adoption event will feature 18 local shelters and rescues including several purebred dog rescues (Columbus Cocker Rescue, Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue (MWBTR), Ohio Pug Rescue, and Ohio Rottweiler Rescue). Additionally, there will be two cat only groups (Cat Welfare and Cozy Cat Cottage) and shelters that feature both dogs and cats (Citizens for Humane Action, Humane Society of Madison County, Humane Society of Clark County, New Beginnings Animal Shelter, Pet Promise, Pets Without Parents, Powell Animal Welfare Society, and Stop the Suffering).
Canine Collective, Faithful Forgotten Best Friends, His Hands Extended Sanctuary, and Peace for Paws Ohio will also be among the Elite 18!
We hope you will come out and support MARS and all of the local rescues and shelters at this fun event. To make the flyer larger, please click on it and print it out!
For the seventh year, Columbus Dog Connection will be presenting Woofstock 2013 on Saturday, August 24, from 6-10 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 Columbus Commons located at 160 South High Street in the heart of Downtown Columbus. Tickets are $10 with kids 12 and under FREE.
Woofstock will feature bands Musashi, The Get Outs, and Donna Mogavero.
There will be lots of vendors, several rescue groups, tons of food and beer, and great raffle items. Spayed and neutered dogs can enjoy all the fun, too.
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!
