Bow Wow Bonanza! Our 3rd Annual Doggie Meet Up

The Bow Wow Bonanza is back in action!!! After organizing and settling on a location change, we are SO excited to announce that we’ve got a permit secured and a space reserved at the beautiful Lake Merritt Amphitheater!

Calling all animal lovers, advocates and do-gooders alike! Please join us on Sunday, October 18th with your pets, friends and/or family members at this FUNdraiser benefiting W.O.M.A.N., Inc. The Bow Wow Bonzanza not only highlights the correlation between pet abuse and domestic violence but also that pets make great companions for the self-care, recovery, and healing of domestic abuse survivors. All proceeds go towards the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. pet fund which will help survivors pay for away-hotels, veterinary costs, and pet food when in need. Join the community and their beloved animal friends at the Bow Wow Bonanza!

Be sure your animal pals are dressed to impress because the PUParazzi will be in full swing! There will also be some great prizes for your best dressed companions & for generous humans who decide to donate to the pet fund ahead of time.
