It's a tail-waggin' good time you won't want to miss. Canine Companions DogFest DC raises money for Canine Companions for Independence assistance dogs to help people with disabilities.
Take part in the canine costume parade, family-friendly activities, raffles, games, and goodies for both you and your pet from local vendors. Enjoy the festivities and walk with your dog at Reston Town Center in Reston on October 13th from 11:30am to 3pm.
DogFest DC is celebrating the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to place assistance dogs with children, adults and veterans free of charge. These highly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do, including opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.
So don't miss out on DogFest. Join the fun - and Give a Dog a Job.
