“Woofstock” is a fun-filled, family friendly event for both the pet and pet lover to spend a day together and raise money for the local Humane Society. Pet lovers can come with their leashed pet to peruse the various vendors including wine tasting with Hometown Wine and Spirits, receive a complimentary photograph of their family with pet by 74K Photography, receive a nail trim for their dog from Big Paws K9, and much more.
The mission statement of the Logan County Humane Society is to prevent the cruelty, abuse and neglect of animals, promote the proper placement of animals through adoption, work toward the solution of pet overpopulation, educate the public about the humane treatment of animals, and aid in the return of lost animals to their owners. ::Quote from Humane Society::
