The 8th annual Woofstock 90210 in Beverly Hills saw more than 3,500 people and their pets hit Roxbury Park’s Wiggly Field for a day of fun, pet weddings, and adoptions and rescues June 26.
A total 46 pets were adopted, making this the most successful Woofstock 90210 yet.
“It was a very busy day with many rescue groups as well as the LA City shelters participating,” said Bill Crowe of the Pet Care Foundation. “Thanks to everyone at the City of Beverly Hills for being so organized and getting the word out – everyone had a great day.”
In addition to the pet adoptions, the day-long festival featured 45 pet-related vendors and specialty booths, five food trucks, and a whole lot of fun for the whole family.
Vendors distributed free product samples and treats; pet advocates brought about awareness of pet cruelty and abuse; merchants sold pet products and accessories; and there were an abundant of pet service providers showcasing their specialties, including in-home doggie massages. The canine crews of Disc Dogs entertained the crowd with dog performances in agility and athleticism.
Event highlights included dog weddings, celebrity dogs Maxx and Gentleman Norman, and the pet parade and talent show competition.
The new Beverly Hills Community Dog Park opening in late summer on Foothill Road and Alden Drive had representatives at a booth to answer questions and take donations that will help enhance the park with trees, benches, agility features and more. To date, over $180,000 has been donated to the Dog Park. If you would like to make a donation, visit beverlyhills.org/dogpark.
