If you were a homeless puppy or an adult dog living in Northern California this summer, your chances of finding that furever home you deserved were pretty darn good, thanks to the Puppy Party Palooza.
Puppy WHAT? Puppy Party Palooza is an interactive adoption fair run by the CANIDAE-sponsored Special Achievers Team of Rocket and Ashley Hoskins, with help from the K-9 Comets, their talented team of Frisbee Dog Stars who wowed the crowd and inspired them to take home their own furry four-legged athlete.
Puppy Party Palooza takes place every year at the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton, California. This hands-on, fun-filled learning exhibit and entertainment extravaganza was designed with one thing in mind: to bring people and adoptable dogs together. And as we all know, when a homeless dog finds his family, it’s a huge win-win for both!
At Puppy Party Palooza, potential adopters could learn all they needed to know about dogs and view demonstrations on dog grooming and health care. They could check out the popular “Pup-E-Harmony” to help match their family with the perfect dog. Puppy Party Palooza also offered training tips and a space where fairgoers could play games with the dogs.
Every dog adopted at Puppy Party Palooza was sent home with a CANIDAE goodie bag that included can lids, coupons, a Frisbee, TidNips treats, armbands, and of course a free 5lb. bag of CANIDAE dog food to get them started on the right nutrition track with their new family.
May they all live happily ever after.
