DOGMA Street Party, San Francisco, CA, September 30, 2012

San Francisco’s Octavia Street usually provides drivers with a path to their varied destinations, but on September 30th a portion of the boulevard will  help to put orphan animals on the road to a brighter tomorrow.

Hosted by The San Francisco SPCA and 7×7 magazine, dog devotees, fans of felines and their furry companions are invited to the second annual DOGMA Street Party– an afternoon of tail-wagging entertainment and free adoptions.

Canines in costumes and Spots with skills will enjoy lapping up the limelight in the pet talent competition, while pet parents can ask questions about their dog or cat’s behavior or health at the “Ask the Trainer” and “Ask the Vet” booths. People can benefit from an ear acupuncture treatment while their four-legged friend enjoys a massage, and attendees can mull over pet-related merchandise and services as they stroll among the many local small business booths.

“At the SF SPCA, we understand San Francisco pride and we’re excited to be throwing an event in celebration of it,” said Jason Walthall, SF SPCA co-president. “DOGMA is a great chance for animal lovers to connect with each other, local businesses, and their animals. They might even meet their new best friend; we’ll have adoptable animals on site, along with our rescue partners, and all SF SPCA adoption fees will be waived at DOGMA!”

When: September 30, 2012 from noon – 4 p.m.

Where: Octavia Street between Hayes and Fell in San Francisco, California
