Woofstock 2019 @ Marin Humane
May 19 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

 

Dear Woofstock guests,

Thank you for purchasing Woofstock tickets to help us raise much-needed funds for the shelter animals.

It looks like Mother Nature is challenging us with intermittent showers and a possibility of thunderstorms.  Our dedicated volunteers are busy moving things around today so you will still enjoy a great day under cover with The ILLEAGLES rocking the Pavilion, delicious hot food from Amy’s Kitchen, three kinds of Lagunitas on tap, and tasty Thirty-Seven Wines to warm you up.   Vendors will have great animal-related items, the Kids Zone will have crafts and face painting, and the mega raffle will be in our auditorium.  We will also have seating available in the auditorium to enjoy your meal.

Due to the location changes, the louder volume inside the Pavilion, and the possibility of thundershowers, we recommend that you consider the comfort of your pups and leave them at home tomorrow.  We’ll miss seeing them, but their welfare is our top priority.

Also, we are especially grateful for our amazing volunteers who are giving up their day to help us.  Please give them a smile and a little patience as we all hope to have an enjoyable day and, more important, help thousands of animals with the funds that are raised.

Thanks again,

Nancy B. McKenney, MNPL, CAWA
CEO/President
