Since its inception in August 2010, Home for Good has adopted over 2,000 dogs to loving homes. They hit the milestone of their 2,000th adoption in the beginning of August 2013 and will celebrate this milestone at this year’s Bark-A-Que. The event is expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees and includes local media coverage from HomeTowne Television.

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. Attendees can visit the microchip clinic where a veterinary technician will be inserting microchips for $35, which includes the microchip, insertion and enrollment in a recovery service.

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. All monies raised will directly help the rescue continue on its mission of saving the lives of innocent dogs. To find out more about Home for Good Dog Rescue, visit www.homeforgooddogs.org.
