Notes: bring conservation lit and practice animal welfare related pitch

"The 9th Annual Somerville Dog Festival is a community-wide event to celebrate dogs and the families who love
them. The Somerville Foundation for Animals proudly hosts the festival, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting local
animal-related charities. The primary recipient is the Somerville Pet Food Bank, which provides pet food for local food
banks including the Greater Boston Food Bank and Project Soup in Somerville. Last year, we donated over 60,000lbs of
pet food to support those in need in our community. “DogFest 2018” will incorporate lively entertainment and
educational opportunities for dog owners. Planned activities include a wide variety of dog sports, working dogs
including a police K9 unit, urban mushing and the popular Doggie Fun Zone. There will also be exciting contests such as
Best Trick and Best Dressed!"
