THIRD ANNUAL BIG DOGS ROCK ADOPTION EVENT
Because Size Matters!

Hosted By: The San Diego Animal Support Foundation
Saturday, August 15th, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fiesta Island Across from Fenced Off-Leash Beach near the OTL area.

Big Dogs Rock Was a BIG SUCCESS!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the event on August 15. We had a record number of big dogs adopted that day -- 75 dogs found their new forever families and even more received applications for adoption. Here are just a few of the happy dogs who found new homes:

When it comes to dogs... SIZE MATTERS! If you love big dogs, join us on Fiesta Island for a very special adoption event featuring BIG DOGS ONLY (50-pounds or more), and puppies that will eventually be big dogs! This is an ANNUAL event, bringing together 18+ legitimate, local non-profit rescue agencies and shelters, featuring more than 100 large dogs all in one place!

Three years ago, this collaborative adoption event was developed to attract people who prefer larger breeds, bringing them to one place where they can find their perfect dog among hundreds of big dogs. Today, the Big Dogs Rock adoption event has become one of the largest, most popular annual adoption events in San Diego

Because the economy continues to negatively affect adoptions, this year's event will also focus on encouraging big dog lovers to come out and learn how to become a temporary foster family. Foster homes are needed to prevent dogs from being killed in shelters, until permanent homes can be found. Potential fosters will get a chance to meet and interview representatives from 17 local agencies to find the one with whom they wish to volunteer.

To help transition the dogs to their new homes, all dogs will go home with a doggie bag filled with goodies, including quality health food, shampoo, toys, coupons, and gift certificates for free services like pet-sitting, dog walking and grooming!

Bring your own dogs to play on Fiesta Island's famous off leash dog beach, buy a raffle ticket, and maybe take home your new best friend!
