106.1 BLI and 102.3 WBAB are proud to sponsor Canine Companions DogFest Long Island/NYC, September 24th at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa Park!
Gather your friends, family and dogs for a day of fun! The human-canine bond is truly unique. On our happiest and hardest of days, our dogs love us endlessly. They are our everyday heroes in so many ways. Whether as assistance dogs, working dogs, or pet dogs, there are countless tales of man's best friend doing amazing things. Join the fun at your local DogFest as we celebrate the joy dogs bring to our lives. Registration is free, fundraising is encouraged. There are sponsorship, volunteer, and vendor opportunities too!
When registering, be sure to indicate you are bringing a dog to get your free DogFest dog bandana. Then fundraise to qualify for some fun DogFest swag!
Be sure to checkout our Facebook event page for the latest on DogFest Tri-States, participate in dog friendly activities, and let people know why you are participating. You can even download this fun sign to let everyone know how your dog brings you joy!
DogFest supports the mission of Canine Companions to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained service dogs free of charge. These service dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.
