Doggie Fun Fest Miami August 16th Benefiting The Pets Voice


     Doggie Fun Fest Miami: Here at The Local Miami our furry, 4 legged friends are hands down our best friends. We do everything with our dogs. Trip to the market? We bring the dogs. Walk around Brickell Key? We bring the dogs. Just going for a leisurely stroll? We bring the dogs. As a matter of fact, you may not have noticed, but when you’re out and about one afternoon just stop and look. We’re willing to bet you’ll see dogs everywhere. Starbucks. Lincoln Road. Ocean Drive. At the cafe. Miami is without a doubt a “dog city”.

And for a city with so many dog and animal lovers, it’s imperative that our city has dog friendly events. On Saturday, August 16th a the “Doggie Fun Fest Miami” will take place from 11am to 7pm at the Miami Airport Convention Center’s East Hall located at 711 NW 72nd Avenue. So what exactly is Doggie Fun Fest Miami? It’s an air conditioned, 30,000 square foot space where you and your dog (or dogs) can come and just have fun. There will be a “Doggie Fun Zone” (which we imagine will be similar to what a traditional dog park would be) as well as a race track and obstacle course where veteran agility and beginners alike will be able to show off their skills. And guess what? The cost of admission is only $5 or FREE for the entire family with your voters registration card!

Since this is an event centered around dogs, it should go without saying that this is really a family event. With that said a bounce house will be there for the kids to enjoy as well as food and refreshments that can be purchased. As a cherry on top there will even be a fashion show where our tail waggers will be strutting their stuff on the catwalk – although we may have to come up with another name!

Doggie Fun Fest Miami also has a very important underlying cause – it’s early voting time in Miami Dade County. And being the dog friendly city that we are, it is up to us, their owners, to speak up for them and give our furry family members a voice. Pets’ Trust Miami has a simple, yet very important mission: “The Pet’s Trust mission is to substantially reduce both the animal overpopulation and shelter deaths of companion animals in Miami-Dade county.” Seems straightforward enough, however many obstacles are in their way, and without your help and your vote, they will continue to become burdened with setbacks.

Pets’ Trust will also have their Pets’ Voice Express, an air conditioned bus that can take you, your family and your dog (of course) to the nearest voting location and educate yourselves on what their organization is all about.

So get on out to the Miami Airport Convention Center with your family and your dogs on Saturday, August 16th from 11am to 7pm!
