Pawlooza Celebrates International Homeless Animals’ Day

London's Festival For Dogs Partners With Animal Rescue Groups Across Ontario to Celebrate International Homeless Animals’ Day

On Saturday, August 21st, "Pawlooza", London's Festival for Dogs, partners with 40 animal welfare and rescue groups across Ontario to combat Canada's abandoned and neglected animal epidemic.

In an effort to raise awareness about the growing amount of homeless and neglected pets in Canada, Pawlooza - London's Festival for Dogs, has coordinated one of the country's largest animal rescue gatherings (ever) to its mix of everything dog-related. The festival has close to 40 rescue and non-profit, animal welfare groups who are showcasing adoptable pets, fundraising, and networking.

The festivities take place at the Plunkett Estate in West London on Saturday, August 21st. The date – the third Saturday in August – has been reserved by the International Society for Animal Rights’ (ISAR) for ‘International Homeless Animals Day’. The day features close to 80 rallies, adopt-a-thons, and events being coordinated across the globe.

Pawlooza organizers are expecting upwards of 15,000 animal lovers and their canine companions to be in attendance. There will also be 125 pet-industry vendors, free samples, pet psychic shows, trick demonstrations, doggie dock diving, trail walking, racing, a doggie DNA lab, cutest dog contests and more. With Michael O’Sullivan, the Executive Director of the Humane Society of Canada, recently reporting that “each year, in Canada, over 400,000 healthy dogs and cats are killed because there simply aren’t enough homes”, the stage appears to be set for the rescue groups and their adoptable animals to get some much needed exposure.

Pawlooza is awesome!! Here is a little more info..

Take your dog dock diving, go trailwalking, go swimming in the Pawlooza pond, test your dog's agility in the FunZone, get trick advice, get obedience advice, get readings from a pet psychic, learn about pet first aid, watch agility demonstrations, watch the Jack Russell races... shop from 100 vendors, load up on free samples, watch dozens of doggie demonstrations and events happening throughout the day. We've packed as much fun into one day as possible... there isn't a better place to spoil your dog!

Admission is free at Pawlooza; but, there is a $10 cost per vehicle for parking [all for charity]. So, be sure to car pool and pack as many people and dogs into your car as you can! It only happens once a year...
