In his memory, the ANIMAL RESCUE FUND (ARF) will dedicate this year’s Classic Car display to David Mullins at DOG FEST to be held Sunday, May 15, from 12 Noon to 4 PM. Several cars from Mullins’ collection will be available for viewing. Classic cars were a hit last year and anyone wishing to include their cars should contact ARF.

Dog Fest is a fun filled day of everything animal. Families and their canine companions can have a day out in the country for a wonderful cause. Dog walks, dog costume competitions, face painting and pony rides are just a few of the variety of family activities. In addition to the classic car exhibit, adults can enjoy beer, wine and a great BBQ lunch.

Silent Auction Items include Dog Bowls from the CHRIS COOLEY Gallery, National Baseball tickets, Gift Baskets from PEDIGREE (R), a weekend stay at Peace & Plenty at Bollingbrook Farm, an UTTERMOST dog bed, a round of Golf at a local Country Club, paintings by local artists and lots more. This year, musical entertainment for the event will feature Peter Durand and Nathaniel Davis.

The event showcases local area shelters and animal rescue service organizations with booths, information and adoptable pets.

Animal photographer Kathy Durand will be on hand to photograph your animals.

“We are so excited about this year’s event,” stated ARF Founder Ursula Landsrath. “Last year, we had over 200 adults, children and pets supporting our efforts to help those who dedicate their lives to animals in need. After all, that is why we started! This year, we hope to double the fun and double our impact to support local animal shelters and animal rescue service organizations. It is all about the animals and people who serve them.”

Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) will hold their 7th Annual CAT & Dog FEST fundraising event as always at Fox Hall Farm in Delaplane, Virginia on Sunday May 15, 2016 from Noon to 4:00 PM, rain or shine.
