St. Tammany Humane Society seeking Partners & Sponsors for “WOOFSTOCK 2016”
Mandeville, LA – Planning has begun for Woofstock 2016, St. Tammany Humane Society 27th Annual Festival & Low Cost Vaccine Clinic which is the Northshore’s only Mega-Adoption Event. The 2016 event is to be held at the Castine Center in Mandeville on Sunday, February 28th, 2016, from 10am – 4pm.
Last year, over 2,600 folks attended Woofstock and made it a “howling” success. This success enabled the placement in homes for 99 animals in one day. Over 200 adoptable dogs and cats from St. Tammany Humane Society, area rescue groups and shelters will be on hand with the goal of finding homes for a hundred or more of the animals present. All participating rescue groups agree on one low cost adoption fee and there is a streamlined adoption process during the event.
In order for this to happen, the St. Tammany Humane Society is currently seeking sponsors, food vendors, and rescue groups to make this adoption event a success. If you’d like more information on partnering with the Humane Society for this event, please contact event coordinator, Michele Nazar at 985-892-7387 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the St. Tammany Humane Society’s 63rd year in operation and our 27th annual spring low cost clinic and fundraising event. Woofstock is our largest fundraiser of the year, with over 450 dogs expected to go through the low cost vaccine clinic, and as many homeless pets as possible adopted into their new homes, and everyone enjoying the festival-like atmosphere. There will be dog and costume contests, a Woofstock marketplace featuring local vendors, kiddie-entertainment, music, and fun festival food and drink. It is truly a fun and exciting day to spend with your family and the family dog.
Funds raised by this event will help to change the lives of hundreds of animals in our region providing them food, shelter, veterinary services, and the opportunity to be adopted into a great home.
The St. Tammany Humane Society is one of Louisiana’s largest non-profit, no-kill animal welfare organizations and shelters.

We rely solely on the support of caring people like you to fund programs and services that profoundly benefit the animals of our community.
