Coming to the Bash? Great! We can't wait to see you! A few things to keep in mind:

  • Friendly dogs of all breeds are welcome
  • Dogs must be on a standard leash - no flexi-leads, please
  • No girlies in heat, please
  • If you have a puppy, we strongly recommend that you leave your puppy at home until he has finished his vaccination schedule (usually around 16 weeks).
  • Breeders are welcome to attend, but we ask that you not advertise. Let's keep the spotlight on the homeless adult dogs who need homes.
  • Please note: the pavilion building has two floors but does not have an elevator (stairs only). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Veterinarian on-call: Wyllow Pet Hospital
