Dog lovers and owners will have a wonderful time with their furry companions at the free Second Annual Bark Bash, organized by the team at leisurlist. Taking place at the Fayetteville Town Center on July 13 from 4 to 8 p.m., Bark Bash is designed to conveniently connect pet owners with a range of local vendors. Attendees and their pups can shop for all sorts of products and services, visit with local rescue and adoption agencies, all while hanging out and socializing with other dogs and their humans.
For those with warm hearts ready for a new BFF, adoptable dogs will be onsite to find forever homes. (Adoption applications will be on hand to begin the process, but dogs will not be able to go home with new owners that same day.)
The event will also serve as a collection point for much-needed dog supply donations, all of which will be distributed to local shelters. Items in particular need are: puppy/dog food, puppy pads, hand sanitizer, cleaning and laundry supplies, as well as new or gently-used bedding, towels, blankets, leashes, collars, harnesses, treats and toys.
It’s important to note that registration for Bark Bash is required and includes a waiver for those bringing a pet. Pre-registration is availale online for faster access to the event. Festivities will take place primarily indoors, and all guests are responsible for cleaning up after any pet messes.
