Petrock is on SUNDAY!!!!
« on: September 05, 2005, 05:12:23 pm »
Sanity and I are going, Moni and Tenchi, Heather and Zoey, and Tina and Riley.  Anyone else?  It's $10 to get in, and there's a $1 off coupon on their site.  www.petrockfes t.com  Also, for the people who ARE coming, I wanna way to recognize each other, like a place to meet, or all our dogs wear a certain color bandana or something.  I dunno.  Ideas?

The Pet Rock Festival is an annual event held within
the first two weeks of September each year. It is an
afternoon expo/festival that includes live music, vendors,
food, contests, and most importantly, more than
200 animal organizations broadcasting their causes.
Proceeds from the festival are distributed to
Massachusetts-based animal welfare organizations,
including shelters, cruelty
watchdogs and rescue
leagues. Regular recipients
of our festival
include the Sterling
Animal Shelter,
National Association for
Humane and Environmental
Education (NAHEE)
and the Massachusetts Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA). $1,000,
$500 and $250 awards are also handed to rescue groups
and shelters that win our coveted “lottery” and “adoptable
dog parade” during the festival.
So far, Pet Rock Fest has distributed well over $35,000
to worthy animal causes in New England.We’ve also
given to groups such as Mass. Vest-A Dog, the Animal
Legal Defense Fund, the Worcester Animal Rescue
League and the Second Chance Animal Shelter.


It's at Quisigamond State college in Worcester Mass.  It's from noon to 6.

We probably won't stay the whole day but we will deffinately be there for 2-3 hours. Zoey doesn't wear bandanas usually but maybe we can make an exception so you can spot her easier :)

Don't worry, we should be pretty easy to spot - look for A big ol Saint with a girl with wicked long dark blond hair (that would be me - and I am also in the BPO collage) and a really tall guy with black hair (Dan). I have seen everyone's picture that is in the collage and I will be keeping an eye out for sure  :)

Well, I'm not nearby, and good thing, because you STILL didn't tell me where it's being held.

 ;) ;D

Here's a pic of us, Moni & Tenchi.  Just look for a short, round lady with a tall, narrow, white & black polka dotted Great Dane.   ;D 

Don't mind the crappy pic.  lol  I just took it this AM on a timer and it went off before I thought.   :-[  Eh bien, c'est la vie!

I don't have a wicked recent one, but here's me and the boy from a while ago.  If I get a newer one I'll post it.



Moni and I are gonna meet at a nearby park a little early if anyone else wants to come.  And yes there's food! :)  And yeah a ton of people come, it's a huge event for the local pet lovers.  If you go to the website, there's a snippet of last year where NECN came and taped it.

OH!  And the BPO Collage....... .  Go to Off Topic and it's the first post.  It's on page one, Jamie keeps updating it.  I look like a hooker in mine, so ignore that :-[

Zoey and I just got back from Pet Rock. I kept an eye out, but unfortunately, we didn't run into anyone from BPO... we did have lots of fun though. I have never seen so many dogs in one place! We met a bunch of other saints from the saint rescue and zoey sniffed a couple hundred dogs. She loved it! She was so happy that when we got home she didn't even flinch when we bathed her. I was so proud of her :)
