It’s a fun opportunity to meet homeless pups in our community and the volunteers who save lives every day. Woofstock features include the wildly popular Ultimate Air Dogs Dock Diving competition, hosted by former Detroit Tigers pitcher Milt Wilcox. 2016 Regional Flyball Champions “All Rev’d Up” will thrill the crowd with their racing prowess, along with Soccer Collies showing off their ball handling skills and Lucky Dogs Lure Chasing course, where you can cheer your dog on to victory! Greg “The Fiddler” Holt and friends will keep the park rocking and Reeves Subaru will offer test drives in their dog-friendly SUVs.
“Bring volunteer rescue groups, local business supporters, and the public together to help raise awareness and support for the amazing grassroots effort in our community to save lives is our goal at every event. The reward is seeing how much people care.” Cory Cooper, Executive Director, TampaPets
In addition to our donation center for rescue, TampaPets joins forces with the national “I’m Not a Monster” Food Drive holiday campaign to benefit rescue groups in Tampa Bay and surrounding counties. We kick off the drive at Woofstock and will be working hard to raise over 50,000 pounds of food and supplies for rescue groups by the end of the year. Our many sponsors will also attend Woofstock offering samples and specials. TampaPets is thankful for their support more than words can say, and especially appreciates our signature partners, ShineBright Realty, Central Bark Doggy Daycare, Reeves Subaru, The New Barker magazine, The Pet Loss Center, The Mortgage Firm and Florida Community Bank who make a year-round commitment to helping save the lives of homeless dogs and cats.
Since 2004 TampaPets has been making sure homeless pets who need a second chance find forever homes. TampaPets shines a light on the thousands of dogs and cats in shelters and foster care in our community. We host adoption events and provide supplies and training assistance to animals in need. Along with education and training, TampaPets events have produced thousands of adoptions. Working together saves lives every day.
