This October, Whereoware was a local partner for the 5th Annual DogFest Washington DC Walk ‘N Roll to benefit Canine Companions for Independence (CCI)! The event raised over $68,000 in funds to support CCI’s mission to provide expertly trained service dogs to change the lives of individuals living with disabilities.
DogFest DC celebrates the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to place assistance dogs with children, adults, and veterans free of charge.
Furry friends and families of the greater DC metro area joined together to trot for a great cause at the Reston Town Center in Reston, VA.
The festive day was full of doggy demonstrations, fun activities, music, food, and more. We had a blast – grab your leash and see if a DogFest is coming to an area near you!
