Posted by Gail Schneider on Tue, Feb15, 2011 @04:35 PM

Woofstock is back, it will be held Saturday, March 19 at Founder's Park in Islamorada. An event hosted by Marrvelous Pet Rescue. It is all about raising money for the adoption and care of homeless animals. It is a great cause as well as lots of fun. Last year was a huge success. Fun was had by all, the 2 leggeds and the 4 leggeds. All the pups were well behaved, so were the people!
