Talking Rock's "Woofstock" Raises $2,000 for Local Animal Shelter and Non-Profit

Prescott Community's Dog-Friendly Event Raises Funds for No-Kill Shelter and Non-Profit Pet Adoption Organization

PRESCOTT, AZ--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - "Woofstock," the first-annual event centered around man's best friend at Talking Rock, raised $2,000 for the Yavapai Humane Society, a Prescott-based no-kill animal shelter, and the United Animal Friends of Prescott, a non-profit pet adoption agency.

Nearly 200 people gathered at Talking Rock, a luxury Prescott, Arizona master planned community, to participate in Woofstock. The August 16 event featured a walk around the Talking Rock property, pet adoptions, a dog agility demonstration, Frisbee demonstrations by Air Major, a pet look-a-like contest, and a variety of dog-friendly vendor booths. All proceeds from the event benefitted the Yavapai Humane Society and United Animal Friends.

"We're very pleased that in its inaugural year Woofstock raised $2,000 for the Yavapai Humane Society and United Animal Friends, two local organizations that provide so much to our four-legged friends," said Talking Rock general manager, Jim Leisinring. "The event was a blast for our community and Prescott neighbors, and we're looking forward to hosting Woofstock again next year."
