Did you hear that we are taking a break in 2019? Don’t worry, we aren’t gone for good. Our Paw Palooza team is currently in the process of planning the next Paw Palooza! The date is still to be determined, but we know for sure that we will be back in July 2020.
After planning Paw Palooza 2018, the Agway of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation team realized that in order for the event to have an even bigger impact on the Cape Cod animal welfare community, it was necessary to change to a biennial schedule. We’re beyond thrilled with the impact this event has had on our local animal welfare community. Thanks to our sponsors and attendees, we’ve donated over $110,000 since 2016 to the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Brewster Shelter and the MSPCA in Centerville.
We will certainly miss you in 2019, but this just means we are raising the bar for 2020!
So what does Paw Palooza 2020 have in store? Of course, we will continue with our crowd favorite event of the high flying dock dogs! The dock diving competition that tests your dog’s speed, distance and height is our main event, and never fails to disappoint. We’ve had pups come from as far as Florida come to compete in Paw Palooza’s competition. We’re also exploring new dog-friendly activities and entertainment.
In the meantime, come on in and visit the team at Agway of Cape Cod! Many of our Paw Palooza guests don’t realize that the festival is all planned, organized, executed, (and mostly staffed) by the owners and staff of Agway. While we’re on Palooza break this year, we’ll still be hosting a variety of pet-friendly fundraising events to keep the support for the Cape’s animal welfare organizations. We’ve partnered up with Devil’s Purse Brewing Co. for some fun Yappy Hours! Stay tuned for more on Agway’s website.
We’ll be in touch as the year progresses with the event date, sponsor and vendor information and more. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Instagram at @pawpaloozacapecod, and keep an eye out for our emails!
