Canine Companions for Independence Dog Fest

September 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join the fun at DogFest Long Island, a community-based walk and festival that brings dog lovers together for a cause. Whether you have a dog or simply love them, spend the day at DogFest and celebrate our canine friends and heroes that bring joy to our lives. All funds raised benefit Canine Companions for Independence and their mission of matching assistance dogs with children, adults and veterans with disabilities, free of charge. These expertly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.

Gather your friends, family and dogs and head to Tanger Outlets Deer Park in Deer Park, NY on September 21 for the 7th annual DogFest Long Island. Everyone is invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, inspiring speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food and more! Registration is free. Fundraising is encouraged.

Let’s help raise funds for Canine Companions while sharing our important mission and having fun! We look forward to celebrating with our supporters, graduates, volunteers and friends.

So don’t miss out on DogFest. Join the fun and give a dog a job.
