Paw Palooza Cape Cod’s Pet Festival & Dock Dogs Tournament 2017 in Yarmouth

Get ready for the biggest dog festival on the Cape! in July 2017
Back for a second year, Agway of Cape Cod is bringing DockDogs®, complete with their 45-foot pool and professional team, for a sanctioned tournament surrounded by a dog-friendly festival open to all and supporting homeless and sick pets on the Cape Cod.

Paw Palooza Cape Cod’s Pet Festival & Dock Dogs Tournament 2017 in YarmouthOn July 15 and 16, dogs will be flying, swimming, diving and entertaining the masses during the Cape’s second-ever DockDogs competition, the featured entertainment at Paw Palooza at Dennis Yarmouth High School. Dogs of all breeds, sizes and skill levels will leap from a platform into a 45-foot pool, competing for speed, distance and height. More than 6,000 people (and hundreds of dogs) attended last year’s event, which also included a show ring, massive vendor fair, puppy pool pavilion, “Doggie University” tent, food trucks and more. Due to the tremendous turnout and response, this year’s event will be even larger in scope, featuring extended hours, the addition of a raffle, more vendors and a special Kids Zone. Net proceeds will once again benefit The Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Cape Cod shelter (located in Brewster) and the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ (MSPCA) Cape Cod shelter

About Great Dog Rescue 

Great Dog Rescue New England (GDRNE) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, shelterless, all-breed rescue group headquartered in Massachusetts. Our group is comprised of volunteers all over New England who love dogs and want to help those that end up homeless through no fault of their own. Loyal and loving dogs turn up every day in New England and Southern shelters, as owners turn them in or they’re found roaming the streets after being dumped. To the best of our abilities, we evaluate all of our Great Dogs’ temperament and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children. A dog’s health is checked, and we make sure they are up-to-date on all shots and are spayed or neutered. Then, we place them in loving foster homes until they find their very own family. Our goal is to meet the needs of each dog as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home.
