Calling all dog lovers! Mark your calendars for DogFest Washington DC, taking place in Reston from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22. Whether you’re looking to meet other dog owners in the area, just want to find a place where you can enjoy with your furry companion beyond your apartment and the dog park, or if you don’t even have a dog yet but want to love on all the friendly pups at the event – this event is for you!
The event is a 1-mile walk to help fundraise for an incredible cause, paired with raffles, dog-friendly vendors, games and more for a full afternoon of fun. The proceeds support Canine Companions for Independence. This organization pairs veterans, children and adults with disabilities with a service dog of their own, at no cost to them. So, grab your furry bestie and support this great cause in September. You can read the stories of some of those whose lives have been affected by this great organization here!
