What is Barkfest?
Barkfest 2012 is an event dedicated to raising funds and awareness to end pet overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas-area dogs and cats. The theme is a “neighborhood party for a good cause,” and based on past events are expecting 300-400 people to come out in support. Food Trucks, Live Music, Entertainment, Beer, Pet-friendly vendors, and lots and lots of Dogs.
