People Playing at Give a Fetch Event

The wait is finally over — #GiveAFetch weekend is here!

Come Say Hello and #GiveAFetch!

This year, we’re thrilled to be hosting events in four different cities — Dallas, TX, Las Vegas, NV, Kansas City, MO, and Pittsburgh, PA. All weekend (Saturday, September 22nd, and Sunday, September 23rd) we’ll be wagging our tails and fetching balls from 10:00 am – 3:00 p.m.

Each location will have dog-friendly activities, adoptable dogs, local vendors and food trucks, so make sure to come on down and say hello!

“With last year’s #GiveAFetch events bringing so much joy across the country, we couldn’t wait to do it again. This unique initiative is a fantastic way of promoting our longstanding commitment to responsible pet ownership. While we value our pets throughout the year, we truly love being able to kick off National Dog Week in such a special way, garnering further awareness to our furry friends, both with a home and without,” said Julie Turner, Camp Bow Wow’s Vice President of Marketing.

We’ll post pictures from this year’s event in just a few days, but for now, take a look at some highlights from last year!

Why We #GiveAFetch

Dogs need so much more than food, water, and a roof over their head — they need love, belly rubs, special treats, and socialization. Our goal is to make every pup’s life better, no matter where they live or who their parent is. This year, for every tennis ball dispensed at the #GiveAFetch event, we’re donating $5 (up to $10,000 per event) to a local shelter of the user’s choice.

But we’re not stopping there! We’re also giving away free doggy day care to one lucky dog owner. If you find the gold tennis ball in our 7-foot tennis ball dispenser, you’ll enjoy free day care and boarding for a year!

If you don’t live in any of the cities we mentioned above, have no fear — you too can still enter to win. From September 22-October 31, you can post a photo of how you #GiveAFetch about your pup to social media for a chance to win. Fetch our complete list of contest rules on our site.
