DogFest Orlando Is Coming To Winter Park On Saturday April 23

Gather your friends, family and dogs for a day of fun, as DogFest Orlando 2022 is coming to Winter Park on Saturday, April 23!

The event, organized by Canine Companions, will feature local vendors and pet-friendly activities for dogs and their owners.

DogFest will be held in Central Park in Winter Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Registration is free. Fundraising is encouraged. There are sponsorship, volunteer and vendor opportunities too, plus when registering, be sure to indicate you are bringing a dog to get your free DogFest dog bandana. Then fundraise to qualify for some fun DogFest swag!

DogFest supports the mission of Canine Companions to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained service dogs free of charge. These service dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.

The organization has placed over 6,600 service dogs, yet there are more than 400 people with disabilities are still waiting for a match, according to Canine Companions’ website.

It costs approximately $50,000 to raise and train every service dog at Canine Companions, but the cost to the family that will receive the dog is completely free. Because of that, Canine Companions has multiple options on how to donate, which include monetary and vehicle donations.

Play your part in helping, and don’t miss out on DogFest. Join the fun!
