Come volunteer to help at the Westport Dog Festival!
For those who don't know what the "Dog Fest" is all about - here's a quick snapshot:
- Date: Sunday, May 20, 2018 (raindate: Sunday, May 27), Winslow Park Westport (downtown Westport)
- Annual all-things-dog event spearheaded by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce. TAILS is the lead nonprofit and is in charge of all volunteers and inviting/organizing all of the nonprofit animal welfare groups (a huge undertaking! :)) All proceeds benefit nonprofit orgs.
- Last year we had 2,600 attendees; for 2018 we are expecting north of 3,000. Dogs welcome (all leashed/vaccinated).
- We have 3 main rings: Doggie Obstacle Course Ring (Doggie Fun Zone), "Demo Ring" (all sorts of dog demonstrations - guide dogs, search & rescue, training, etc) and the "Contest Ring" (best lap sitter, most look alike-dog/owner, etc). This is in addition to 75 vendors and the Fairfield County Police K9 teams demonstrating. Take a look at the pictures (next bullet) - it's a lot of fun!
- Pictures from last year's event are on our Facebook page here.
Did I mention that TAILS is responsible for all-things volunteer? So - we woudl love to have your help! Please sign up and let us know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you will be able to spend some time (or all day!) on the 20th!
Thank you very much!
