FESTIVAL ATTENDEES: In order to keep WoofStock fun for all, dogs in attendance should be comfortable in large crowds and around other dogs. No retractable leashes are permitted at WoofStock. No adoptions are permitted at WoofStock.
RESCUES & SHELTERS: CPAA and FFN have worked and advocated for an end to the pet overpopulation crisis for the past 16 years. We firmly believe that the spay and neuter of all companion animals is the only answer. As such, registrations to attend WoofStock will not be accepted from rescues and shelters who do not spay/neuter animals prior to adoption.
VENDOR REGISTRATION DEADLINE: September 1, 2019 - NOW CLOSED
Among the wonderful vendors at WoofStock will be CPAA's Hounds of Prison Education (HOPE) training and rehabilitation program for rescued dogs, which began in March of 2005. HOPE has saved the lives of more than 300 dogs, who otherwise would not have had a second chance.
HOPE pairs carefully selected inmates at the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill with shelter and rescued dogs for training and rehabilitation, with the assistance of professional trainers and HOPE volunteers. The dogs live with the inmates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the inmates are responsible for the care and training of the dogs. When the dogs' training is complete, they are paroled and adopted into forever homes. Each HOPE graduate comes with free training support for life with one of CPAA's HOPE trainers.
The HOPE dogs may have scars inside and out, but the focus of HOPE is to look forward, not back. With world-class training and positive fear-free, reward-based rehabilitation, HOPE gives the dogs new beginnings, bright futures, and second chances.
Please stop by the HOPE booth to meet some of these amazing dogs and talk with the families who have adopted HOPE graduates. And, we'll be offering $5 nail trims for dogs at the HOPE booth--all proceeds will benefit HOPE.
Thanks to our generous sponsors:
