Join us at the Canine Carnival – a tribute to canines both wild and domestic. We will honor the working and playing dogs of the community with guest speakers, presentations by the staff on the resident wolves, and by visiting canine groups! Enjoy demonstrations from a variety of dog related activities, such as herding, agility, service dogs, search and rescue, and more. Food will be available on-site from the Salsa Spot, and Family Fun Inflatables LLC is donating a bounce house for the day! Learn about different breeds of dogs from local rescues and groups, meet dog related service providers, and visit with sellers of dog related merchandise. Dogs on leash always welcome. All proceeds benefit the Wildlife Science Center.
