Home for Good welcomes all families and leashed canines for a fun-filled day which includes tricky tray prizes, super 50/50 raffle, dog adoptions, contests, children’s activities, vendors, food and live-entertainment, photos with your pet and more. Families will receive dog goody bags (valued at $25) with a $5 donation.

Families can learn the latest tips on dog manners from certified behavioral trainers. Pet owners can show off their dog's talent to compete for contest prizes. Each Home for Good adopted dog gets an “I was rescued by Home for Good Dog Rescue” bandana to show off their HFG pride. Adopters come back with their adopted dogs to meet the other dogs and to seek out their siblings! Foster families enjoy coming to the Bark-A-Que to see their former foster pups. Home for Good’s adopted canines and their owners are invited to march at the Adopter Dog Parade. The most fashionably-attired dogs will be crowned as “Mr. and Mrs. Bark-a-Que.”

Donations, sponsors and vendors are welcome and appreciated. Please contact events@hfgdr.org for more information on how to become involved with the 3rd Annual Bark-A-Que.
