Prospective pup "parents" at Camp Bow Wow's Anniversary Dog Adoption Party last year.
Homeless pups from throughout Ventura County will once again be the focus of our anniversary celebration for Camp Bow Wow Agoura Hills, the premiere doggy day camp, training and overnight camp.  The Camp’s 4th annual anniversary event will be celebrated with a multi-rescue group dog adoption on Saturday, December 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The celebration will also include complimentary canine holiday photos with Santa, tasty treats and libations for party guests and their humans and a special drawing for a deluxe Camp Bow Wow gift package valued at over $200.

Anyone interested in adopting canine companions as well as Camp Bow Wow's friends and neighbors are welcome to attend the festivities. 

At Camp, we recognize that our success is due to the continued support of the community and our shared passion for dogs.  That's why, every year we pay that support forward by celebrating the efforts of rescue groups who are dedicated to finding forever homes for pups that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.

We also foster dogs at Camp throughout the year; promote adoptable dogs and the rescue groups that work so tirelessly to rehome them on our website and social media platforms.  This annual Dog Adoption celebration is just one more way to bring attention to these dedicated all-volunteer animal rescue groups that are committed to reducing animal homelessness.

Kim Sill, founder of Shelter Hope Pet Shop, who will have adoptable pups at Camp on Saturday notes, “Since opening our doors at Janss Marketplace in Thousand Oaks, Shelter Hope Pet Shop has rescued and re-homed over 650 pets.  It takes a village to save these animals, and we couldn’t do it without the help of Camp Bow Wow. By fostering our adoptable pets, it allows us to help more animals; we are hoping to save 650 more lives this year!”

"SPARC is the little shelter that could,” added Chad Atkins, shelter manager for Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center (SPARC) who will also be participating in the Camp's Dog Adoption event.  “We are the first and only No Kill shelter in Ventura County. We believe that we can be the prototype for shelters of the future, having one of the highest release rates in the nation at 99.5%."

Visitors to the Camp Bow Wow Agoura Hills’ fourth anniversary celebration and dog adoption may enter a drawing for a deluxe Camp Bow Wow gift package that contains certificates for four free days of doggy day camp, a one-hour one-on-one training session with Behavior Buddies Trainer Sam Newman, and a doggy spaw package -- bath, blow dry, brush and nail trim, along with assorted canine treats. 

Camp Bow Wow’s Certified Counselors will be providing guided tours of the facility, including its new turf covered outdoor play yards.  Cake and sparkling cider will be served to human party guests, while canine guests will be served pupcakes and other specially-made doggy treats.

Remember, saving the life of one dog won't change the world, but it will surely change the world for that one dog!

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
