Woofstock on Monument Avenue!

Both of our Maury Place "Inn Dogs" are strays we adopted from rescue organizations. Lucy, our beagle mix, came from the Richmond Animal League ("RAL"), and Chico, our terrier mix, came from the SPCA in Rockbridge County. They have both been loving, wonderful additions to our family. On Saturday, May 30, 2009, RAL will be hosting "Woofstock," a dog festival on historic Monument Avenue between Lombardy and Allen! There is a $5 suggested donation, and all funds raised will go to support RAL's mission to save and provide homes for animals in need. There will be animals available for adoption, dog agility and games, contests, vendors, a kids area, food and drink, and live music! The "Strut your Mutt" walk will be at 9:30 a.m., and the festival takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visit www.ral.org or call 804-379-0046 for more info.
